Brief Answer:
Simple precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
yes you can do it but simple sitz bath with plain lukewarm water is also good and no need of potassium permanganate.
Just wear cotton panties,wipe every time you pee and use perineal wash as before
This all will suffice along with gynaecologist examination once a year.
