Unlikely serious: Yeast associated problems in otherwise healthy individuals are usually just unpleasant like itching & soreness. Can be transmitted sexually which can cause relationship problems. More commonly problem in diabetics. Serious medical problems can occur in immunocompromised subjects, but not in healthy individuals..
