    Many of the anti-fungals out there are not well-tolerated by children.
    They can be a bit strong on the gut, and strong tasting.

    This abstract may be of value-

    I have not access to the pdf.

    In the event that a child has undergone several antibiotic treatments, it might be beneficial to start them on probiotics but also to end their day with a relaxing herbal tea/tincture, there is a potential for the addition of calendula to make it a safe, effective antifungal.

    Impressive compilation of evidence to support calendula use.
    After reading, you may decide to use it for liver protection as well!

    Many antifungal agents are available for the treatment of candidal infections, and these are available in several pharmaceutical forms for either topical or systemic use. The major agents belong either to the polyenes, such as amphotericin B and nystatin; or to the azoles, such as itraconazole and fluconazole. However, because of the need for extended treatment, the high cost, toxicity and limited action of the classic drugs, new and effective products are desirable to treat these fungal infections. The antifungal effect of essential oils (EO) of many aromatic plants has been described in several studies (9). The essential oils rich in cadinene isomers are widely reported to possess high levels of anticandidal activity (10). Our data indicate that the oil of C. officinalis flowers exhibited antifungal activity against all investigated yeasts, including the clinical pathogens obtained from reference stocks as well as those recently isolated. This oil provided more interesting results than Nystatin, a fungicide used for topical treatment of mucocutaneous candidiasis.
