Child has constipation, yeast infection and pale yellow stool. Taking homogenized milk. Recommendations?

My 12 month old has been on homogenized milk for about 2 weeks now. She s seemed constipated, so we cut down the amount she s drinking. Last week, she started getting a rash , which became a very bad yeast infection and now her stool is pale yellow and kind of foamy/curdled. She s very crabby, and is not normally, and is not really eating much and is waking up, often, throughout the night. Might she have a lactose intolerance , or could it be something more sever?

Most probably your baby is suffering from viral gastroenteritis and during this period children do suffer from transient lactose intolerance .Restrict her milk intake and instead give her yogurt and probiotic .See to it that she is kept well hydrated with oral rehydration solution if the frequency of motion go high.For the rash you could apply calamine lotion.If she starts getting fever or if her urine output becomes inadequate and she eats poorly then get her examined by her docter.
Take care.
