In brief: Not likely
Although cultured, unpasteurized yogurt will help to repopulate your bowel with lactobacilli and possibly, by creating competition with yeast in your bowel reduce the risk of reinfection, it is unlikely to do anything at all to reduce or cure existing infection on the penis or vaginal mucosa.
