What is the treatment for discomfort in perineum area and urinary tract infection?
User rating for this question
I have had discomfort in perineum area for a few weeks. I also have urinary tract infection type symptoms. Having the feeling to use the restroom even when you don't have to. I also have aches in my testicules that comes and goes. I went to a urologist and he said prostrate was normal. He put me on antibiotics for prostitius. I have been on 500 mg twice a day of cipro and nothing had changed. Symptoms are still here. Please help!

Brief Answer: Correct line of treatment------------------------- Detailed Answer: Welcome to the forum. The diagnosis of prostatitis is one of exclusion. If it is bacterial prostatitis, proved by urine culture test or culture of prostatic secretions, it is relatively easier to treat. If there is no bacteria demonstrable by any of these tests, then the usual course is to give cipro for one month. Also, certain other steps do help------ 1. Keeping bowels smooth - if needed laxatives can be used. 2. Anti-anxiety medicines like Alprazolam. 3. Muscle relaxants. Hope this helps, Truly
