In brief: No
But after good treatment, the best treatment is excellent hygiene and use of just-in-case small doses of the antibiotic cream used to treat it in the first place.
..After sex and after a loose bm. The acid level of semen encourages the bacteria to grow, and a source of the infection van be a loose bm hard to get clean from.

In brief: Yes
There are plenty of over the counter antifungals for vaginosis.
However, not all cases are due to fungi so an evaluation by a physician should be entertained when you have tried over the counters and your symptoms continue. And, if you are pregnant or diabetic, it's straight to the doc! don't mess around.
