Cystitis is one of the most common diseases of the urinary system, and it is also a frequently occurring disease in men. Because male friends are too busy, they often ignore their health problems, which leads to cystitis "raging" in men and brings many troubles to normal work and life. Therefore, men must pay attention to the harm of cystitis.

There are many misunderstandings in treating cystitis, so what misconceptions should patients get out of during treatment?

Cystitis is divided into acute cystitis and chronic cystitis. If the treatment of acute cystitis is not timely, it will turn into chronic cystitis. But people should pay attention not to take diuretics when urination is abnormal, and timely diagnosis is the key. This misunderstanding is the most common. The following are the misunderstandings in other aspects:

1. Abuse of antibiotics. Clinically, it is found that some people take antibiotics immediately as soon as they have frequent urination and urgent urination. Urology experts remind us that some patients with frequent urination and urgency are mental diseases and nonorganic diseases. These may also be caused by unstable bladder function. Frequent urination and urgency caused by these reasons do not need antibiotic treatment. Therefore, it is recommended to go to the hospital for examination before applying for the right medicine in case of similar situations.

2. Unwilling to cultivate bacteria. Urine bacteria culture needs urethral mouth disinfection. Go to the designated department of the hospital to get a special culture bottle. The culture time usually takes about 3 days, which is a little troublesome. However, when the efficacy of empirical drugs is poor, urine bacterial culture can provide the types of pathogenic bacteria and the corresponding drug sensitivity report and guide clinicians in choosing sensitive drugs.

3. Instruct doctors to take drugs according to their experience (especially the author of repeated urinary sensations in older women). It should be noted that this not only causes doctors boredom to a certain extent but also often makes patients unaware of the changes in their condition and the production of drug-resistant bacteria, and the ultimate damage is the patients themselves.

The normal bladder has strong resistance to bacteria. But elderly are somewhat different from ordinary people in treatment because their body resistance is relatively weak, and cystitis easily relapses after treatment.

4. Stop taking drugs when your symptoms improve. Improvement of the condition does not mean recovery. Early discontinuation will cause the bacteria remaining in the bladder to re-breed, leading to cystitis and increased drug resistance. The clinical indications for cystitis withdrawal are: using 2 or more antibiotics, the symptoms are relieved, and urine tests show normal for more than 3 consecutive times. Therefore, cystitis treatment must comply with the doctor's advice and adhere to treatment. Giving up halfway will only prolong the treatment time and affect regular work and life.

Cystitis in the acute stage is similar to other acute stage diseases and has the characteristics of acute onset. The low immune stage is the high incidence stage. Therefore, men and women should pay attention to urethral hygiene during long-term low immunity.

When the first attack occurs, the doctor will give the patient antibiotics. Most patients can be cured after 3 ~ 7 days of medication. If cystitis recurs, the doctor will first ask the patient to do a urine bacterial culture and drug sensitivity test and use antibiotics according to the drug sensitivity.

For the elderly, doctors mostly choose drugs with high drug concentration and low nephrotoxicity in kidney tissue and urine to control inflammation as soon as possible effectively.

If you, unfortunately, suffer from chronic cystitis, don't panic. The traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be selected for treatment. Its effects of clearing heat and detoxification, diuresis, and gonorrhea, activating blood circulation, and relieving pain can effectively treat this disease.

If the infection occurs repeatedly and the curative effect is poor, the doctor will check the patient's immune function. Doctors will give patients immune-enhancing drugs if the patient's immune function is low.

If the patient is not cured for a long time or has recurrent attacks, the doctor will consider making corresponding examinations to rule out other diseases, such as whether there is infection near the urethral orifice, whether there is urinary tract obstruction, and whether there is systemic disease.
