    It's doubtful that you would get another one from those panties, but I have heard that some materials can prevent your body from "breathing". I was always told to wear cotton panties & not the nylon ones. Apparently the nylon holds the moisture more & keeps your body warmer...and it could aide in a yeast infection. I don't believe that the underwear causes the infection, it just can make it worse if you wear those kinds of panties.

    Hope this helps you!

    ok this thread is kind of old... but i was looking for one and stumbled across it...

    you actually can. some experts say after washing you should iron or microwave underwear you wore when you had a yeast infection...careful with the microwave, some elastics melt (not personal experience)
