Epididymitis is a common male disease. In the case of this disease, patients need to be vigilant. Its harmfulness is relatively great, whether in work or life. The most apparent impact of epididymitis is on male sexual function and fertility. Epididymitis patients often have penile erectile weakness or low sexual desire during sexual life.

Epididymitis is the most common pathogenic factor of bacterial infection. The epididymis is the breeding room for sperm, so once inflammation occurs, it will affect the growth and maturity of sperm. Epididymitis can be infected through sexual transmission, seminal retrograde passage, and blood circulation, mainly manifested as swelling and pain of epididymis.

But epididymitis is not everyone will appear. To reduce the incidence rate of epididymitis to a certain extent, men need to know the vulnerable population.

So, which groups are more likely to suffer from epididymitis?

1. Men aged 18 to 35

Men in this age group belong to the youth period, and their sexual life is more active, making it possible for pathogenic bacteria to take advantage of it. It also causes retrograde infection, making patients suffer from epididymitis. In addition, men at this age are studying or working, which is the most stressful year. They are inevitably anxious and bored psychologically, have irregular life and eat irregularly, allowing bacteria to invade the body, thus inducing epididymitis.

2. Men with the urethral operation

Some men are born with urethral stricture, and there are some diseases, such as prostatitis, so they will carry out later operations, such as urethral stricture and urethral dilatation. This kind of urethral operation also increases the risk of infection and increases the risk of epididymitis. If you are unlucky to be infected, you can take targeted treatment with drugs.

3. Men who don't like drinking water and are sedentary

Drinking more water will help to excrete urine. If you don't urinate, it will cause pathogenic bacteria to remain in the urethra and breed in the urethra, thus inducing inflammation. Sitting for a long time will lead to poor blood flow in the prostate, which will also increase the risk of infection. Therefore, we must drink more water and defecate instead of sitting for a long time.

4. Patients with other genitourinary system infections.

The most common pathogenic bacteria causing epididymitis are Escherichia coli and staphylococcus. These bacteria are mainly caused by other inflammation of the urogenital system, enter the epididymis via the vas deferens countercurrent, and then reproduce in the epididymis to cause epididymitis.

Some older men often have prostate problems, such as dysuria, which may lead to excessive residual urine. Residual urine may enter the reproductive system retrogradely through the urethra and cause epididymitis.

The above is a detailed introduction to the people with a high incidence of epididymitis. So how should these people prevent epididymitis in their lives?

1. In daily life, men should avoid eating too many stimulating foods, such as spicy, greasy, sour, etc. Excessive drinking is prohibited, and the habit of holding back urine should be corrected in time, which will seriously threaten men's health.

2. Try to keep a comfortable mood and avoid excessive mental and physical exertion. Relax your body and heart properly. Long-term pressure will make people depressed, which will seriously affect the health of the human body. Choose some suitable fitness programs appropriately.

3. Sex should be moderate and not too frequent. Too much sex will cause male epididymis congestion, affect the metabolism of the epididymis, reduce human immunity, and easily cause some inflammatory consequences.

4. Don't hold your urine. Some men have the habit of holding their urine. Because the tension of the urethra is sometimes too large after holding their urine, some urine will be squeezed into the reproductive system, which may cause aseptic inflammation. For the elderly, we should pay attention to emptying the bladder because if repeated prostatic hyperplasia causes urinary exhaustion, urinary bladder retention may cause retrograde infection.

Even if a man still suffers from epididymitis, what should he do? Don't panic. Go to the hospital promptly and take active treatment according to the doctor's instructions. Patients in the acute stage should stay in bed and rest. The use of scrotal support can reduce symptoms. Self-made large scrotal support with a cotton pad will be more comfortable. Pain relievers can be used for those with severe pain.

Local hyperthermia can relieve symptoms and promote the regression of inflammation. However, early use of hyperthermia can aggravate pain and promote the spread of infection, so it is advisable to use ice packs for local cold compress in the early stage.

Epididymitis is mainly caused by bacterial infection. Therefore, patients should promptly identify the pathogenic bacteria through bacterial culture and drug sensitivity tests and select sensitive antibiotics to control the disease. Common drugs include ceftazidime, erythromycin, ofloxacin, tetracycline, moxifloxacin, etc.

If it is chronic epididymitis, patients can choose the Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment to avoid antibiotic resistance and possible side effects. It can eliminate all symptoms related to epididymitis and cause to achieve a complete cure.

When you find a disease, you must go to a doctor in time, do not delay, and do not worry about fear. Epididymitis is not fatal as long as you take active treatment.
