It : It sounds like you may have developed a yeast infection. This commonly occurs after taking antibiotics. When a yeast infection is present the vaginal tissue is inflammed and if rubbed can bleed easily. Try an over the counter yeast infection cream and insert it into vagina as directed. You can also rub some of the cream on the outside inflammed area. If this treatment fails schedule a visit with your doctor. Take care.

Get checked: You may have an internal yeast infection, so you might try an OTC treatment. If it doesn't help you should get checked.
