Yes. The cream works its way back out and has to go somewhere. If you don't want to wear a panty liner, you'll be changing your underpants a lot.

You can, but don't get the scented kind. The perfumes will just irritate things down there.

Well, that wouldn't prevent you from "getting it again".  There are many determining factors for getting a YI, but you can wear a liner during the day to protect your undies from the medicine.  You probably won't need a liner at night since you are laying down anyway, in fact it might be a good idea to not wear underwear at night.  Also, only cotton underwear.
