Yes. It works well as long as the problem is localized to the perivulvar region. If the problem is from a small amount of urine sitting perivuvlarly and leading to secondary dermatitis, then this should work well.

If there are other problems (food allergy, atopy, etc...) then it will not be as successful. Also a swab cytology might be helpful at the time of surgery - make sure that we know if the local dermatitis is secondary to yeast or bacteria - as antibiotics can make fungal infections worse and visa versa. Usually antibiotics alone post op will work though.
