    Welcome to BYC. Can you consult with your local vet to get some antifungal medicine for her? Fluconazole (Diflucan) and Nystatin can be used to treat fungal infections, such as vent gleet. Vent gleet can also be from a bacterial infection. The plain yogurt and probiotics are good for getting her gut bacteria back to normal after antibiotics and intestinal infections. Your vet could also test her droppings for evidence of what is going on.
