Bacterial prostatitis shows high rates of response to antibiotic therapy in a short-term treatment, such as penicillins and cephalosporins. It is believed that the intercellular microenvironment of an acutely infected prostate may become permissive to the diffusion and distribution of a number of drugs. In fact, there is empirical evidence that, similar to the scenario occurring in the case of brain infections, where inflammation partially disrupts the blood-brain barrier. Bacterial prostatitis may alter the tight adhesion of prostate glandular cells, thus allowing various antibacterial agents, including betalactams, to “leak” through intercellular spaces, easily reaching the ductal/luminal regions can cause infection. Read on to find out the recommended treatment of prostatitisbased on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)



Despite prompt responsiveness to antibiotics, bacterial prostatitis is a serious condition, occasionally patients should be hospitalized due to the risk of onset of severe complications like life-threatening urosepsis, or to the likelihood of evolving into category II chronic bacterial prostatitis or category III chronic prostatitis/ chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Bacterial prostatitis is often caused by ascending urethral colonization, other factors can also induce this infection. For example, direct seeding from transrectal prostate biopsy procedures. Factors predisposing to bacterial prostatitis include unprotected sexual intercourse, urinary catheterization, use of transurethral instrumentation.


Growing number evidence demonstrate thatTraditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) forbacterial prostatitishas a striking effect. We know that bacterial prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland, doctors may prescribe some antibiotics, such as Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, Doxycycline, Ciprofloxacin,etc. If the post prostatic massage urine culture results are positive, then treatment with appropriate antibiotics is likely to be successful.


Recent Chinese herbal medicine has a prominent influence on chronic bacterial prostatitis. It’s a tend for patients to try herbal medicine to treat inflammation. For instance, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill as a kind of TCM, has good curative effect oncuring bacterial prostatitis. For most conditions, there is evidence to know that TCM methods work well on eliminating the inflammation and infection. Herbal medicines will also ensure a safe care.
