Sure it's acne?: Maybe it is something else. Please check with your doctor as you may have any of a number of other skin conditions in that area.

I discourage: Strongly your trying to treat this with probiotics. If it truly is BV the probiotics will most likely not work, if it's not BV (which it might not be) then you don't know what you are treating. I'd pursue this with a doctor rather than self-treating.
