Itching: yeast: Even after vaginal yeast (fungal) infections are treated, the area around the anus and vaginal opening is affected and can still cause itching. Apply some of the yeast treatment to the area and the itching should dissipate. It is very rare to communicate yeast to a male, so intercourse without a condom should be no problem., unless he is not circumcised .
