Is it possible to have yeast infection in multiple areas? I am currently suffering from a vaginal yeast infection, but also have itching in my armpit

In brief: Unlikely

Although the moistness at the armpits may predispose them to candida infection, this is not a common occurrence.
I suspect that they are not related. A contact allergy (usually from fragrance) to the underarm deodorant may be more to blame.
