Do yeast infections always mean something weak in the immune system?

In brief: Not all the time

Antibiotics can cause vaginal yeast infections.
But if you are having oral or skin infection that usually does mean an impaired immune system. You should be checked for diabetes, low white blood cell count and HIV which are more common causes.
