Not directly, unless: Unless you are a diabetic. Most juices available in the market are very high in sugar. If your blood sugar is too high, that can make you more prone to yeast infections (and infections in general). If you are getting recurrent yeast infections, make sure to get checked for diabetes!

No: Juice contains a lot of water. And, drinking a lot of either would not result in a yeast infection.

Hydration: It is good to keep yourself well hydrated anytime you have an infection! However, the hydration will not treat the yeast infection alone.
