In brief: Not if it is realy B

Bv acidolphilus will help prevent it, but it should be treated with anti-biotic gel or supp or antibiotic pills.

In brief: Alternatives

Intravaginal boric acid, a 600 mg capsule once nightly for 14 days may be able to help with your problem. This medication is not FDA-approved for this purpose and must be made by a compounding pharmacy.
Boric acid can be fatal if swallowed rather than used intravaginally, so be careful around children. Still it's a worthwhile option when all the antibiotics don't work.
