In brief: Yes

Yeast infections are fungal infections of the skin or mucous membranes.
Yeast normally likes to grow in dark, warm, damp enviroments. Usually in men, the yeast will grow externally and is known as jock itch. Any patches of redness that itches on the skin, i would have a clinician check out.
