Gyno said overgrowth of lactobacillus is causing my vaginal burning and irritation. What can I do to kill off the excess bacteria?

In brief: Gynecologist

It sounds like you have been seen and diagnosed by a gynecologist.
That doctor is in the best position to provide treatment options as they have done and examination and testing. Lactobacillus is a normal component of the vaginal flora and does not need to be eradicated. Clarify with the doctor who did the recent exam the diagnosis and treatment plan
