Treating Prostatitis

Acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis can be treated effectively with antibiotics. You must take the entire dose even if your symptoms improve to prevent re-infection. Treatment can last several weeks to several months.

Treatments that may help relieve the symptoms of chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), which affects about 90% of men with prostatitis, include:
  • Alpha blockers such as Flomax may improve urinary symptoms by relaxing bladder muscles
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Pain relievers such as ibuprofen or naproxen
  • Herbal remedies such as Quercetin or bee pollen
  • Physical therapy, including pelvic exercises or biofeedback
  • Warm baths and relaxation techniques
  • Dietary changes such as discontinuing caffeinated, spicy, and acidic foods and beverages
  • Experimental treatments with heat (microwave) therapy, which are being evaluated
