In brief: Not a good idea

It may, but douching can often times cause a vaginal infection by changing the normal flora of the vaginal, and sometimes the bacteria can be pushed up through the cervical opening into the uterus and cause a more severe infection.
You should see your gyn so an exam and culture can be done and you receive the proper diagnosis and treatment.
