See you doctor: typically, bacterial vaginosis patients complain of a thin, watery, foul smelling discharge. If you have or had burning, then you might have a different diagnosis. You need to see your doctor again.

Vaginitis: Call your doctor anyway. There are some types of BV that are becoming more resistant to treatment and may benefit with a course of a different antibiotic. On the other hand, it is also possible that you already had something that wasn't checked before starting treatment. Could you have an STI/ STD? Could you have a UTI now? BV rarely burns, usually just odor and discharge.

Call prescriber: You did. It mention if symptoms are still present, but do phone the prescriber and discuss with him/her as that is the best advice!
