Is Thrush Contagious?

I really hate thrush, also known as yeast. I first started to have to learn about it with my son, due to his kidney anomaly, he was on antibiotics for the first full year of his life. We have been fighting yeast ever since. Yeast, on the skin, such a baby’s butt, appears as a salmon colored rash with small dots. In the baby’s mouth, you will see white patches that do not come off.
