Hello

Yes you can take cranberry tablet but I would prefer juice.

Take probiotics after first trimester of pregnancy to prevent the further infection.

Use vaginal wash containing lactobacilli

Keep the area dry

Nystatin cream would be better for cadidiasis

Hello

Welcome dear

No there is no strict restriction on any of the foods but you should take lot of XXXXXXX vegetables , fruits , salads , whole grains , proteins but less of salt and cold beverages containing soda , less of cheese , ghee and butter.

Spicy and oily foods should be avoided

Regular morning walk is advisable

Journey should be avoided in the first trimester especially the road journey.
