I looked up dog vaginitis and that seemed to fit. I am going to try washing the area 2-3 times a day with medicated soap and using some antibacterial cream and cornstarch to keep it dry. It said that the inverted vulva and surrounding skin folds can cause irritaion and bacterial overgrowth and the licking can also keep it from healing.
Maybe the antibiotics made the irritation worst , a good quality yogurt with no sugar or sweeter may help , you can give your dog a little to eat and see if is agree with her.
