In brief: ?U call internally
Certainly can get "thrush" inside the mouth and yeast infection in vagina.
Children requiring prolonged bladder catheterization or with nephrostomy tube plus antibiotics can develop an "opportunistic" urinary infection especially if child is immune deficient.

In brief: Yeast activity
Yeast are opportunist organisms.
They generally cause no problems when they are present in the digestive tract or on the skin surfaces unless conditions become "opportune" for them to misbehave.Sugary feeds can allow thrush to occur in the mouth. Diaper rashes eventually include yeast if they last very long.Rarely yeast can invade the blood if the immune system is compromised.Extremly rare @ 2y.

Unless there is severe compromise or damage to the immune system -no.Superficial problems such a sdiaper rash or oral thrush may occur.Those who have proposed yeast as a cause for a variety of conditions such as behavioral issues, digestive concerns etc. Have yet, after decades of claims to demonstrate any proof whatsoever.
