How To Treat Epididymitis Without Antibiotics If It's Not Working

Date:2018-03-27 click:

Antibiotics are a type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections. They may either kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. The most cases of acute epididymitis are caused by bacteria such Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and E. coli.

Thus, antibiotics are the first line of treatment in acute epididymitis. However, many patients with chronic epididymitis suffering from lower back pain can’t get their infection fully cured by taking oral antibiotics.
Treatment with antibiotics is controversial because many people have questioned the utility of a trial of antibiotics, but the side-effects and drug resistance of antibiotics are uncontroversial. 
Adverse effects range from fever and nausea to major allergic reactions, including photodermatitis and anaphylaxis. Common side-effects include diarrhea, resulting from disruption of the species composition in the intestinal flora, resulting, for example, in overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria, such as Clostridium difficile.

Antibacterials can also affect the vaginal flora, and may lead to overgrowth of yeast species of the genus Candida in the vulvo-vaginal area.
Drug resistance of bacteria antibiotics is often called antibiotic resistance which means bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics. Emergence of resistance often reflects evolutionary processes that take place during antibiotic therapy.

For example, antibiotics such as penicillin and Fluoroquinolones, which used to have a high efficacy against many bacterial species and strains, are no longer recommended to cure epididymitis because they have become less effective, due to due to widespread resistance of gonorrhoeae to this class.
