Prostate Infections Self-Care at Home
Prostate infections have no therapy that could provide relief at home, except for over-the-counter pain medicine such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve). This will only help to temporarily relieve the discomfort until the person is seen by a doctor. Some health care practitioners suggest using a warm bath (sitz bath) or sitting on a pillow or cushion to reduce symptoms; others suggest avoiding certain activities (for example, avoiding bicycling, horseback riding, or other activities that puts pressure on the groin).
