In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
