Do you throw away underwear after a yeast infection?

I don't know what to do with clothes I've worn during it n during the time I was taking monistat. Do I just wash it or are they now infected. I'm afraid it will come back.

In your position, I would possibly soak them in a bleach solution before putting them in a normal wash, or just run them in a hot wash with bleach, and then be sure to dry them in a hot dryer.  I don't actually know if that is necessary, but I'm with you, enough is enough with an infection and anything that makes me worry it will come back, forget it.
