Infection, call doc: Superficial irritation and microcopic skin injury from shaving have allowed a bacteria like staph, strep, or other to take hold and cause superficial infection, or maybe yeast itself. Call your doctor, whoever is treating your yeast problem. Depending on severity, she might want to see you, or maybe prescribe an antibiotic ointment or by mouth. In the meantime, try soap and water wash twice a day.
