[display_name id=”1″]Prostate Infection (Prostatitis) is relatively common among men in their 30s to 40s. If you have this problem, then you must experience so-called lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) like freqent urination during day and night, urine dribbling and hesitancy, etc. And also discomfort in your perineal area. The most common type of prostatitis is chronic and non-bacterial. Hence this is best treated by simple analgesics(non-steroidal kind) and alpha blockers(like Flomax, Hytrin or Xatral). These drugs relax the smooth muscle near you bladder neck and urethra, thereby improving urine flow and lessening the perineal discomfort. Antibiotics of the Quinolone type work only if you vave Bacterial prostatitis. This is taken up to a month, combined with analgesics and alpha blockers. If you are in your 40s, see a urologist just to make sure that its not Prostate cancer. Have a digital rectal exam done, plus probably serum PSA measurement.
Kidney infection medications?If you have a kidney infection, besides cranberry juice, do they give you anti-biotics, if so, what kind?
It’s my friend here with me, he has had back pain for 3 days (lower) He thought it was his degenerative disk pain, he went to the bathroom 4 times in 20 minutes. I have had a kidney infection, the symptoms reminded me, I will tell him to go see a doctor. He had some anitbiotics and wanted me to ask if they would help to avoid emergency room waiting.

[display_name id=”1″]Kidney infections are treated with anti-bacterial drugs. The choice of drug depends on the patient’s history and a urine test identifying the types of bacteria. The drugs most often used are trimethoprim(Trimpex), trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole(Bactrim, Septra,Cotrim), amoxicillian(Amoxil, Trimox, Wymox), nitrofurantoin(Macrodatin,Furdatin), and ampcillin(Omnipen, Polycillin,Principen, Totacillin). A class of drugs known asquinlones includes four drugs for treating UTIs. They are ofloxacin(Floxicin), norfloxacin(Noroxin), ciprofloxacin(Cipro) and trovafloxin(Trovin).
Often, a UTI can be cured with 1 or 2 days of treatment if the infection is not complicated by an obstruction or other disorder. Still, many doctors ask their patients to take antibiotics for a week or two to ensure that the infection has been cured. Single-dose treatment is not recommended for some groups of patients, for example, those who have delayed treatment or have signs of a kidney infection, patients with diabetes or structural abnormalities, or men who have prostate infections. Longer treatment is also needed by patients with infections caused by Mycoplasma or Chlamydia, which are usually treated with tetracycline, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMZ), or doxycycline. A followup urinalysis helps to confirm that the urinary tract is infection-free. It is important to take the full course of treatment because symptoms may disappear before the infection is fully cleared.

[display_name id=”1″]To understand this you must first know that the prostate is a gland that encircles the urethra (the tube that connects the bladder to the tip of the penis) coming off the bottom of the bladder. The prostate gland is similiar in shape to a donut. The prostate can become enlarged & squeeze on the urethra, making the person feel like they need to urinate but will not let them fully empty their bladder. This allows for urine to sit in the bladder for longer than usual which is breeding ground for infection. The prostate gets enlarged b/c of infection or hypertophy (overgrowth of tissue, causing thickening). Your friend will more than likely need antibiotics to treat the infections (prostate & bladder) thus allowing the prostate to return to its normal size.
