Brief Answer: you can try phytotherapy and stop humaria Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thanks for writing to HCM. This is Dr. Ashish Verma, a general surgeon, answering to your query. Firstly, humaria is an immunomodulator...it supresses the body immunity....so it makes your symptoms a little worse...and may be a contributing factor for your chronic prostitis. So you need to reconsult your gastro specialist about it and your chronic prostitis...about withholding it for sometime till your prostitis is resolved. Regarding the antibiotics....have your prostatic secreations ever been taken for a culture? Coz, if the culture is negative... then antibiotics can be stopped....but in any case they are given for 2-4 weeks only. Mobiac is a painkiller and antiinflammatory... that will help for both prostitis and chrons. Also all your symptoms of pain from your belt line to scrotum will need it. Your supplement NOW, is having mainly antioxidants and herbs that reduce prostrate size...so you can continue it. It will also help with your infertility. Now coming to other treatment options...there are quiet a few options like acupuncture for pain management.... also there is phytotherapy...consisting of quercetin and bee pollen...available in capsules... but you need to discuss these with your treating doctor first. Hope, that i have answered to all your queries. If you have further queries, i will be glad to answer them. Get well soon. Dr. Ashish Verma
