Going commando at night might be a radical for us Asians, seeing as how we’re less open to “exposing” ourselves, even when no one, except perhaps our spouse is aware of it.
However, it turns out that not wearing your underwear overnight might just be the cure for your recurring yeast infection. The reason: Keeping your private bits covered creates a warm and moist environment perfect for bacteria to thrive in, thanks to discharge and perspiration. On the other hand, letting your vagina air while you sleep keeps it dry and clean.
