Possibly: Most likely the answer is yes. If you have never had a yeast infection before, see a doctor first to make the correct diagnosis. Yeast infections are very common, especially in the summer months and after taking certain types of antibiotics and easily cured with over the counter medication. Rarely, it may also be a symptom of other health problems like uncontrolled diabetes or immune disorders.
