Dermatitis?: Genital yeast infections rarely are sexually transmitted or acquired. Whatever the cause of your rash at that time, it is unlikely you caught it from your partner. Your continuing symptoms may not be due to yeast or any other fungus, perhaps some other kind of dermatitis. If your own doctor isn't helping, see a dermatologist. In the meantime, try not to worry. Probably this is nothing serious.
