Dear Panty woman
Panties that do not "breathe", made of synthetic material could lead to a higher incidence of vaginal infections, but cotton panties are fine. Panty liners may have plastic liners which could prevent normal evaporation of sweat and normal vaginal secretions, so unless you have a visible discharge, rather avoid using it all the time. Best is to see your doctor for a smear/swab so that they can identify the cause of the infections and treat accordingly. Avoid using douches or sprays in the area - the vagina is self cleaning.
