Probably won't help: Vaginal yeast infections and underwear, tight clothing, etc is mostly urban myth. It may make a difference once in a while, but not in most women. If not yet checked for underlying problems that promote yeast, e.g. diabetes, do that.

Try cotton panties and no shield, and see your ob to be checked for infection. ...Read more
