Elidel is a near-cure for the allergic action variety of eczema and

GSE, grapefruit seed extract, is a much more powerful anti-fungal 
(including yeast) than any prescription or over the counter that I am 
aware of.  And it is edible and usable as a mouthwash.  Cures thrush and 
fungal skin rashes pretty much immediately.  Just don't use too much for 
too long or you will chemically burn yourself.  (The same warning goes 
for alpha hydroxy washes / cremes.)  Find it at health food stores.

Another money-saving "drug" tip: forget all of those expensive, fancy 
mouthwashes if you are trying to solve a stubborn problem.  Using 
hydrogen peroxide, $0.87 a bottle, is more effective than anything for 
wiping out bacteria / bad breath in 30 seconds.
