Differences between Acute Prostatitis and Chronic Prostatitis

prostatitis pain relief is a common disease which could be classified into acute bacterial prostatitis and chronic prostatitis, each with different symptoms respectively. The differences between them will be made explicit in the following parts.

prostatitis pain treatment is a relatively rare condition of prostatitis, but patients may have symptoms so sudden and severe that require urgent medical treatment. Inflammation of prostate caused by a sudden bacterial infection is the primary symptom, others including an acute urinary tract infection with urinary frequency and urgency often at night, burning or painful urination, fever, chill, fatal, nausea and vomiting. Antibiotics are the first choice of treatment in acute prostatitis. Patients usually take a minimum of 2-4 weeks of therapy to cure all acute infections. However, once deteriorated, hospitalization is required with intravenous antibiotics, even fluids.

Chronic prostatitis includes chronic infectious prostatitis and chronic noninfectious prostatitis. The former is often described as recurrent urinary tract infections, and the symptoms are similar to acute bacterial prostatitis, but the treatment requires prolonged courses (4-12 weeks) of antibiotics. Then about 75% of such cases can be cured with this treatment. For stubborn ones, suppressive low-dose, long-duration antibiotics may be recommended for patients to get relief from the symptoms. And the latter, accounting for 90% of prostatitis diagnoses, should be distinguished from other forms of prostatitis such as acute bacterial prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis. This condition is formerly known as prostatodynia and could be confused with interstitial cystitis. Unlike infectious prostatitis, antibiotics antibiotics are not effective treatments for chronic prostatitis. Supportive therapies including stool softeners and prostate massage, and conservative treat such as anti-inflammatory medicine along with warm sitz baths are recommended for the benign chronic prostatitis. As to severe cases of chronic prostatitis, surgical removal will be advised by the doctor.

Prostatitis is a treatable disease, even a preventable one. People live in a healthy life have a lower risk of get it. They may benefit from avoiding spicy food, caffeinated or acid drinks as well as doing some exercise. However, vigorous activity, especially bicycling should be avoided, because it will aggravate the condition.
