Can I get a yeast infection from Jock Itch?

If my partner has jock itch, will it pass on the yeast infection to me?

First, it’s important to remember that yeast infections can be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. If your male partner has jock itch, or if your female partner has a vaginal infection, you can pass the yeast organism back and forth. The same goes for oral sex. If your partner has a vaginal infection or jock itch, you can end up with a case of oral thrush. Likewise, if you or your partner has oral thrush, it can be spread to the genital areas.

I have done a write up about getting a yeast infection from kissing, and from oral sex. It’s important to read these to have an idea of what is possible and what is not:
