Silk Underwear Combats Yeast Infections
First Magazine for Women: In a study of 100 women with persistent yeast infections, those who wore silk underwear treated with an anti-microbial agent were less likely to experience recurrent infections. Plus after six months, 90 percent of women who wore the silk panties were free of itching compared with 40 percent of those wearing cotton briefs. The take-home: "Yeast thrives in warm, moist conditions, but silk is moisture-wicking, so it keeps the area dry," explains Bruce A. Rosenzweig, M.D. director of gynecology at Chicago's Weiss Memorial Hospital. "This helps reduce the growth of fungus."
