easy ways to soothe itchiness?

Hello lovelies, I could use some input because I am SUPER ITCHY OMG.

For about a month and a half now I've been shaving with varying regularity. I used to just shave a bit off the top of the "triangle" and then shave the sides where the hair grows down onto my legs and trim the rest, but lately I've been shaving everything, sometimes letting it grow in a bit between shaves.

Well, this past week I've been on my period so I went quite a while without shaving because it would have been slightly less convenient and I just didn't feel like bothering. Until yesterday - my period is winding down so yesterday I decided to shave. Being fairly new to the whole shaving game I guess this was the first time I've shaved while on my period...

...and OMG ITCHY. I guess the combination of pads + freshly shaved skin was just not a good combination. And since my period is almost over, it's really not heavy enough for tampons to be an option (I almost always use pads anyway). The itching got so bad that I switched to a thinner pantiliner-style pad last night even though I wasn't positive my period was THAT light yet, but it's still pretty itchy.

It seems to be getting a bit better so I think I'll survive even if I don't come up with anything that'll help, but I thought I'd ask anyway - is there anything that will help with the itching at all? I don't want to bother going out and buying something I don't already have, so things that I might already have on hand would be great.
