Acute bacterial prostatitis is often caused by common strains of bacteria. The infection can start when bacteria in urine leak into your prostate. Antibiotics are used to treat the infection. If they don't eliminate the bacteria prostatitis might recur or be difficult to treat (chronic bacterial prostatitis).

What does prostatitis pain feel like? It's the least common but most dramatic form of prostatitis, beginning abruptly with high fever, chills, joint and muscle aches, and profound fatigue. In addition, you may have pain around the base of the penis and behind the scrotum, pain in the lower back, and thefeeling of a full rectum.

What should you eat if you have prostatitis? High-quality protein. As well as being beneficial for the treatment of an enlarged prostate, studies support that zinc is helpful for prostatitis. Food high in zinc include nuts, seeds, shellfish, meat, and eggs. Omega-3 fatty acids and healthy fats found in the Mediterranean diet can help to reduce inflammation.
