Yes, actually they can. It is less common in men than women but it is possible. Women are more likely to get a yeast infection because the vaginal area stays moist and it can allow bacteria to form, creating a yeast infection. One of the most common ways a man can get a yeast infection is through contact of a vagina that has a yeast infection.
