In the past, I commented how he smelled somewhat like corn chips, whcih now reading I see that can be a symptom of yeast. Does anyone know of anything that I can give him to eat or drink that would not hurt him or any treatment he's already on, but would be good at preventing/clearing up yeast?
Topically, you can use vinegar. When I bathe the dogs, after rinsing I pour a 50/50 water/vinegar rinse over them (avoiding their face and ears). I'll dip each of their feet in too, to be sure it gets between their toes.
If your dog is dark coloured you may prefer to use apple cider vinegar, as white vinegar can lighten their fur somewhat (though I've not noticed it on my fawn coloured dog, nor my white & red one).
I'd also encourage you to add some apple cider vinegar to meals mixed with water. My dogs love it, and it has fantastic health properties.
