Ensure that the: Yeast infection has cleared before you shave again. If you are sure it is a yeast infection you can treat with over the counter meds. Over- the- counter medicines for yeast infections include: micon 7, monistat, vagistat, (tioconazole) gynazole, femcare, gyne-lotrimin; mycelex.

Not shave: Don't shave if it causes pain while you have a yeast infection. Shaving isn't a necessity, but treating the yeast infection is. The bumps will subside. A warm bath soak might help, Ibuprofen for pain.
