Probably yeast: You can try otc creams but if they don't help you'll need to contact your doctor.

Could be both: Either a yeast infection or irritation from shaving can cause itching. It the white discharge is much heavier than you are used to or if you have been on antibiotics lately, it is reasonable to treat it with an over the counter anti-fungal cream. Generic or store brand is just fine.

Yeast,STD or allergy: Yeasy infection should respond to antifungal creams such as lotrimin (clotrimazole) or monistat. See your family or gyn dr. If there is any chance you might have a sexually transmitted disease. Could you be allergic to the soap or shaving cream used?. All symptoms could be from any of above 3. Good luck.

Best to see your pc.: There are several possibilities and an exam by your PC and culture should yield the answer.
