In brief: It can happen

Vaginal yeast infections can be transmitted to partners, but usually is not.
When it happens, it usually causes minor irritation or a rash that goes away without treatment. But in more severe cases, the male can share his female partner's vaginal yeast cream; a little bit rubbed into the irritated area will clear it up.
