Weird symptoms?

Hey all,
I posted in the past about having group b strep symptomatically. I ended up taking amoxicillin 500mg 3x a day for 7 days for it. I felt great! However, about 4 days after I finished it symptoms seemed to have returned. I started getting random vaginal pains again, and the familiar burning feeling. I did some online research, and found out that for a lot of people, they got it after being on metronidazole (which I had been on) because it kills all the bacteria allowing strep B to be super colonized. I found out that many recommended a hydrogen peroxide douche, to allow the oxygen to reduce strep B. I tried that, and it helped a lot. However, now I've started my period. The first day of it, I had difficulty putting a tampon in, it felt really uncomfortable. So I've been wearing pads. The weird thing is, my vagina feels REALLY dry. Like, uncomfortably dry, even though I'm menstruating. And the the left side of the vaginal wall, near the entrance feels a little irritated (but not painful). Everything also seems pretty swollen. It was not swollen after the douching, just after I started my period. OH, it seems key to mention that I am also taking Cephalexin 500mg 2x a day for 7 days now. I've also bought fem dophilus (which I plan to use vaginally after I finish my period, bought gelatin caps for it) and in the meantime, have been mixing it with water to pour in the opening on my vagina, which provides relief for about 2 hours. Has anyone else had these weird symptoms? Or got rid of strep B? Any moral support is appreciated, been battling a mix of strep b/yeast infections for a few months!!
