The prostate is a vital organ. Two important male channels, the urethra and the vas deferens pass through the prostate. The prostate is like a barrier. Once prostatitis occurs, it will affect the urine and semen.

How long does prostatitis need to cure? It can be divided into acute prostatitis and chronic prostatitis.

Acute prostatitis, the general treatment period takes 7-14 days. The length of treatment is related to the choice of treatment and the severity of the disease. Men should treat acute prostatitis early. Patents should have bed rest, intravenous broad-spectrum antibiotics, and drink a lot of water.

If you have chills, high fever, you can use antipyretic drugs. Ciprofloxacin and cephalosporins were recommended as the best broad-spectrum antibiotics. The prognosis of acute prostatitis is generally better. If it is not treated in time, it will turn into chronic prostatitis.

Since it is chronic prostatitis, its onset is not overnight. Chronic prostatitis has a relatively long course of treatment, at least four weeks, even longer time to control symptoms and cure the disease. Therefore, patients with chronic prostatitis should be prepared for a protracted war. For treating chronic prostatitis, herbal medicine is a better choice, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

Some patients, after treatment, have normal white blood cells in the prostatic fluid and negative bacterial culture. However, their symptoms did not improve, or symptoms have disappeared, but still worried, these patients need some psychological treatment.

In addition to medication, daily care is also essential. Three daily tips to protect prostate.

1. Don't sit or ride for a long time and stay up late

Sitting for a long time or riding for a long time will oppress the prostate and affect the blood and lymph circulation of the prostate. It can not only cause prostatitis but also make it difficult to heal. It should be avoided as far as possible. You should stand up and rest when you sit and work or drive for about an hour.

Besides, don't stay up late. Staying up late can reduce resistance and cause inflammation to recur.

2. Don't hold or interrupt your urine

Often, urine will make the bladder inflated, leading to voiding weakness, causing local pressure increase and blood flow is not smooth, aggravating prostate problems. Do not suddenly interrupt urination. Otherwise, it is easy to cause urine reflux into the prostate tube, leading to inflammation. It may also lead to the formation of prostate stones.

3. Quit spicy food and wine.

Spicy food can dilate blood vessels, increase the permeability of blood vessels, aggravate the congestion and edema of the prostate, stimulates the urethra, resulting in weak urination, frequent urination, urgency, and other symptoms of local pain.

Some patients think that the low alcohol content of beer is not a big problem, but they don't know it will still stimulate the prostate to a certain amount.

Studies have shown that people who often drink alcohol are more than three times more likely to have advanced prostate cancer than those who don't drink or drink less alcohol. The prevalence of prostate disease in smokers is 1-2 times higher than that in non-smokers.
