Is it safe to shave your genitals while you have an outer yeast infection?

In brief: No

Shaving can create cuts in the skin and the infection can go into those cuts and spread.

In brief: Not a good idea

Treat the yeast infection first with any of the over the counter yeast creams until you're satisfied that the infection is better, then shave if you need to do so.
