Am a pregnant woman, and I have candidiasis, how can I treat it?
And also if I don't treat it, will it affect my unborn child?

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

First of all, it is important to be diagnosed by your doctor in order to get the correct treatment.  If you did have a positive test for a yeast infection then your doctor can also prescribe an over-the-counter anti fungal medication.

It will not effect your baby in any way, even if you do not get it treated.
