The genitourinary system of men is prone to the development of inflammatory processes associated with exposure to organ tissues of pathogenic microflora. Non-compliance with the rules of hygiene, unprotected sex, weakened immunity, lack of regular sports activities - all these are factors that provoke the development of stagnation and inflammation in the prostate.
The symptoms of acute prostatitis are the cornerstone of prompt medical care, and the chronic form of the disease requires constant monitoring.
Therapy of various forms of prostatitis
To date, doctors use certain treatment regimens for inflammatory diseases of the prostate. The choice of drugs largely depends on the form of prostatitis and the degree of manifestation of its symptoms.
In acute inflammation, fast-acting drugs with antibacterial properties are indicated.
The doctor should prescribe treatment after examination and determination of the type of microorganisms that caused the development of prostatitis. Sometimes with acute symptoms, antibacterial drugs are prescribed immediately when the patient comes in contact. In the future, after receiving the results of a laboratory test, the urologist may prescribe another drug for prostatitis.
The basis for naming one or another type of antibiotics is the results of microbiological culture.
If the acute form of the disease is treated relatively quickly, with chronic prostatitis, therapy can last up to six months. Usually, the doctor prescribes a whole range of drugs that must be taken according to the drawn up schedule. It is important to remember that the prostate in a chronic disease can repeatedly become inflamed, so patients should regularly visit a doctor and carry out a prescribed course of treatment after a second examination.
Preparations for the treatment of prostatitis are selected depending on the severity of the signs of the disease and its causes. Inflammation must be treated with medications intended to reduce symptoms, which are often manifested by problems with urination, pain syndrome, and deteriorating quality of sex life. If the drugs for prostatitis are chosen correctly, the patient after a week will notice a decrease in discomfort in the pelvis and in the volume of discharge from the urethra, normalization of urine flow.
The product's rapid action is no guarantee of its best effectiveness.
Many drugs for prostatitis reduce the manifestations of the disease in a short time, so patients find them the most effective. In fact, this is not entirely true, as not all drugs are able to eliminate the cause of the disease.
The drug prescribed for prostatitis should be selected after identifying the triggering factors.
Carrying out antibiotic therapy
Before using a drug for prostatitis with antibacterial properties, the patient must undergo an examination, which includes not only an external examination, but also a study of blood, semen, urine, bacterioscopy of a smear from the urethra. The result of the analysis allows the urologist to accurately determine the choice of an antibacterial drug. If several types of microbes are detected at the same time, the prescribed course must consist of two or more drugs.
When two antibiotics are prescribed, they can be given in different ways, for example, in injection and pill form.
With acute prostatitis, antibiotic therapy is mandatory. With mild symptoms of the disease, antibiotics are indicated to prevent infection. The urologist decides which medications the patient should take after receiving a transcript of the tests.
The modern approach to the treatment of acute inflammatory prostate disease involves the use of antibiotics for a week and a half. For the treatment of the chronic form, the scheme is drawn up for a longer period - about two months.
A drug containing levofloxacin in its composition relieves inflammation well. This substance is able to rapidly accumulate in the affected tissues and destroy streptococci and staphylococci. The drug is very effective, but it can lead to the development of undesirable effects on the part of the digestive tract and cardiovascular system.
Before starting treatment with the drug, you should carefully study the side effects described in the note and the rules for taking the pills.
The tablet should be taken only after meals, otherwise irritation of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines may occur. If this medication for prostatitis causes a strong deterioration of well-being, it is better to consult a doctor.
In chronic inflammation of the prostate, a drug that acts on various types of pathogens has a good effect.
Against the background of taking the drug, serious disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver, may appear, therefore, doctors recommend supplementing the course of treatment with hepatoprotectants. In the case of adverse body reactions, the urologist changes the scheme according to which prostatitis is treated in men, and drugs are selected depending on the existing pathologies.
The drug, belonging to the group of macrolides, is effective against the simplest microorganisms - mycoplasma, ureaplasma, chlamydia
When detecting chlamydia and mycoplasmosis, drugs of various macrolides and cephalosporins are used. The use of the penicillin group is also justified in the treatment of prostatic disease.
After the examination, the doctor decides which anti-inflammatory drug to prescribe to the patient. The active components of the funds help to restore the urination process and reduce pain.
About which medications relieve pain and swelling, you should ask your doctor. In chronic inflammation, a drug is currently being used with great success that increases the blood supply to the gland, prevents thrombosis, relieves swelling and improves the urination process. The main component of the remedy is dry bovine prostate. It helps to increase potency, normalize microcirculation in Organs genitals and reduce the symptoms of inflammation. Many new drugs intended for the treatment of prostatitis contain this animal component with proven efficiency by urologists.
As an auxiliary component, the preparation contains the most important trace element for the male body, zinc, which helps to restore potency, often reduced in chronic prostatitis. Candles can be used for hemorrhoids and damage to the intestinal mucosa.
Medicines with analgesic effect
The pain that occurs during exacerbations of the disease helps to remove drugs with an analgesic effect.
The NSAID drug has a good effect, which quickly penetrates the prostate and has an analgesic effect.
In inflammatory processes, accompanied by serious problems with the output of urine, urologists prescribe muscle relaxants, which help to relax the muscle tissues of the prostate and bladder and restore urination. The drug is also used for hypertension, with a tendency to low pressure and rupture of the liver, it is contraindicated.
Doctors do not deny the effectiveness of folk recipes in the treatment of prostatitis. Various decoctions can be used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. With heaviness and discomfort in the pelvis, chamomile, St. John's wort, thyme are used. It is useful to add honey to prepared healing drinks.
From the decoctions of these same plants you can make therapeutic enemas, baths. Before the procedure, it is helpful to add 5-8 drops of lavender or tea tree essential oil to the water collected in the container. Sometimes doctors recommend taking baths with conifer concentrate. With prostatitis, it is not necessary to allow hypothermia, so as it cools, it is advisable to add hot water to the bath. The duration of the bath is on average 20 minutes.
When the symptoms of prostatitis appear, you can buy candles, which include honey and propolis.
These products are very useful, as they have a pronounced antiseptic effect. Some men make their own suppositories using wax and honey.
Various tinctures also have a beneficial effect. They are prepared from plants, poplar bark, propolis. Don't forget that natural ingredients can cause an allergic reaction. This method of treatment should not be used if the man has high sensitivity to herbs. Honey is also highly allergenic and should not be used if you are allergic to other bee products. If such body reactions are not observed, honey can be consumed daily in two to three tablespoons.
To remove congestion, doctors recommend massaging the prostate. This procedure is performed with a finger inserted into the rectum or a special device, the cost of which directly depends on the number of functions. The device can be equipped with a vibration mechanism. Such an effect is useful for swelling and stagnation of prostatic secretion in the gland. Any medical procedures should be performed only after a thorough examination and consultation with a urologist.
