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.

Plannedparenthood.org says it's fine to use them but to keep in mind they may soak up the suppositories that are used to treat it (such as Monistat). These are used at bedtime, so a pad at night and tampon during the day would be the idea.

The white is just your discharge. During a yeast infection an overgrowth of yeast (which is a fungus) changes your discharge to a thick white cottage-cheese type discharge.

Yes, if he has intercourse with her, he can get a penile (penis) yeast infection. A man who knows his sexual partner has a yeast infection should wear a condom to protect himself from getting a yeast infection. Men often show absolutely no signs of having a yeast infection if they do have one. Some symptoms he could have would be a white discharge from the penis, and itching, irritation, and soreness of the head of the penis. But most men who have a yeast infection do not have ANY symptoms. However, the yeast infection can still cause damage to your internal organs, even without any outward symptoms. So it is important to treat it if you do get a yeast infection or if you have had intercourse with a woman who has a yeast infection.

You may have a urinary tract infection or yeast infection. You may take over the counter cranberry capsules or tablets or even cranberry juice for the urinary tract infection. For the yeast infection you should see a doctor. Either way, see a doctor.

As long as the yeast infection has cleared it is okay to wear a tampon. Bear in mind that tampons are a major cause of vaginal infections - they provide the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive, effect vaginal pH so effect vaginal flora, prevent vaginal cleaning, and many brands contain harmful chemicals. It is a better idea to consider safer more hygienic options such as menstrual cups or softcups.
