Yeast infection: I recommend that you treat the yeast infection before you have any sexual encounter for a couple of reasons -- it can be very uncomfortable and can spread the infection to your partner. Over-the-counter Monistat is still a good first choice to treat vaginal yeast infection.

Standard therapy: While genital yeast infections are more common in women, men are able to get them as well; the same sort of topical therapy should work. If this is a recurrent problem, he should see his doctor for evaluation of an underlying immune system problem, such as HIV or a congenital issue. Good luck!
