1)First of all do not panic.

2)I can understand the pain and agony that you must be suffering . Bacterial vaginosis needs keen attention and personal hygiene, though not serious it can be troubling issue if not treated in time.

3) I will suggest to keep private parts clean and dry.
In addition, I would treat you with

- Localvaginal tablet of Clidamycin plus clotrimazole,
-probiotic like Cap VIBACT DS once a day for 10 days
- Lactacyd vaginal wash daily at bath time,

Discuss with your treating doctor.

4) If you are sexually active,please use condom during sex act for better vaginal hygiene.
Use of pain killer like Aspirin or Paracetamol as needed will be of help.
