Prostatitis is a diagnosis used to describe inflammation of the prostate gland. It is thought that prostatitis results from bacterial infection; however, infection is not always found. In fact, most cases of recurrent prostatitis do not demonstrate active infection.Prostatitis can be a lifelong problem that comes and goes.
Management of symptoms before they become severe is the key. A treatment regimen commonly consists of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for both infectious and non-infectious problems of the prostate. Why? While antibiotics kill bacteria, it takes special antibiotics to even get into the prostate. Treatments take a longer time than other areas of the body because of the difficulty in getting medicine into the prostate. The prostate protects the male bladder and testicles from infection and contains high levels of certain minerals that may also inactivate antibiotics.
