Can you use tampons when you have a yeast infection?

You can. Use a tampon when you have a yeast infection, but if you are treating the yeast with a vaginal cream it might somewhat block the treatment from clearing up the infection. Also because the vaginal tissue is usually irritated and inflamed with yeast a tampon might be uncomfortable. So a pad might be more comfortable.
