In brief: Absolutely!!!!

Hi Aleena, It is absolutely ok to use skin lighteners to even out the discoloration of skin tones that yeast infections cause.
What is more important is to treat the infection and decrease the inflammation. If this has been a long standing problem then I would suggest that you consult your physician for a work up of diabetes or other things that can show up as skin discoloration.
