Prostatitis is treatable but treatment will vary depending on the cause and type of prostatitis identified. Treatments can include:
- Anti-inflammatory medicines
- Sitz baths (sitting in a few inches of warm water)
- Pain medication
- Muscle relaxants
Until the condition is resolved, patients may want to stay away from spicy foods and caffeinated or acidy drinks as these foods can aggravate prostatitis. Bicycling activities may need to be put on hold as well.
