No, it's not a good idea to use tampons during any sort of vaginal infection.

Tampons are a major cause of vaginal infections and can make vaginal infections worse because they give harmful flora the perfect place to multiply, prevent vaginal cleaning, and change vaginal pH. When vaginal flora is off balance it is more likely that the bacteria responsible for TSS are present too.

Men often show absolutely no signs of having a yeast infection if they do have one.
