In brief: Yeast infection

It would probably be a good idea to hold off shaving any area of skin in which yeast infection is occurring, since shaving creates breaks in the skin (even if you cannot see them), as well as just irritating the area and either promoting the yeast infection or making it more difficult to treat effectively.
