In brief: Yes, Sort Of

Candida can certainly cause itching and spots but not usually like herpes sores.

In brief: Shouldn't

Yeast does not live in nerve cells and re-occur by "breaking out" in the same way as does the herpes virus.
Yeast is usually a re-growth or re-contraction of the fungus. There are many reasons, antibiotic and diabetes being two prevalent ones. There are good otc and prescription treatmens for yeast. Perhaps you should be seen and discuss this. The are some hard to treat yeast infections.
