I took an antibiotic (amoxyllin) a few weeks ago for a sore throat. Soon thereafter, I got very itchy around my vaginal area. The area was also very red - almose inflamed No discharge though. Just very itchy. Then the area appeared to be peeling - sort of white flakes fell off. Now everything is back to normal. Can thrush heal itself or would this be something else?

It sounds like thrush. The antibiotics may have lowered your immunity temporarily. If it is better, there is no need to do anyhting.
