In brief: ? Smega not yeast

Smegma, which is like "dandruff" of the penis can collect very rapidly and look like & could be mistaken for yeast.
Hopefully the yeast was treaed with an antifungal like lotrimin or mycostatin, (nystatin) in which case the whitish stuff you see is likely smegma. Good news is that you are no more prone to std than anyone else.. Please use condom protection, same as any other male to reduce risk of stds.

In brief: Unusual

Men with symptomatic penile yeast infections is unusual.
It would be helpful to know what you've done for this (antifungal creams, systemic medications, etc.), and how it was diagnosed. Also, are you immune deficient in any way. As for susceptibility to stds, breaks in the skin make it easier for organisms to invade your body. Please provide more info and will be more helpful.
