Can Tinea Versicolor cause UTI’s

I have a pretty severe case of Tinea Versicolor, completely covers my chest and stomach, back, arms and starts down my legs.   Nothing my dermatologist prescribes helps.   My question, however, is even though I cannot see any spots on my penis, could the TV fungus cause my wife to get UTI’s?

I don't believe that there is any link between Tinea Versicolor and a UTI- however, sex in general can cause UTI's in women.
