Patients With Epididymitis -- Learn Four Kinds Of Commonly Used Treatments

Date:2021-03-09 click:0
For patients who have epididymitis, some pathogens (such as Escherichia coli) can directly cause damage to the sperm in the epididymal duct, inhibit the activity of sperm or make sperm agglutinated, to reduce its activity. Some pathogens are adsorbed on the sperm surface so that its activity is reduced or even lost.
If epididymitis is caused by neisseria gonorrhoeae, mycobacterium tuberculosis and other pathogens, it will not only cause inflammation and damage sperm, but also easily cause narrowing or blockage of epididymal lumen, leading to incomplete or complete obstruction of the proximal epididymal end.
Doctors warn that if not treated for a long time, epididymitis will induce a variety of serious diseases, such as varicocele, prostatitis, endocrine diseases, nephritis, kidney diseases, urinary infection diseases, malignant tumors and so on, seriously threatening the life of men. So getting treated in time should be the first step for patients with epididymitis.


There are four kinds of commonly used treatments for your reference.

1. General treatment
Patients with acute epididymitis should rest in bed, which can effectively reduce the symptoms. Patients with severe pain can use analgesics to effectively relieve symptoms. Usually, antibiotic treatment is used for acute symptoms, while it is not suggested to take antibiotics for too long since it may lead to some adverse reactions like nausea, vomiting and headache.
2. Physical treatment
Physical therapy is often used as an adjuvant therapy to relieve pain in patients, including hot baths, local hot compresses, etc. Patients can sit in hot water for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. At the same time, pay attention to the water temperature. You know, too high temperature will affect the testis and epididymis tissue.
3. Special treatment
If the patient sees a doctor within 24 hours of the onset of epididymitis, a topical anesthetic can be injected, which completely relives the disease. Body temperature usually drops rapidly and pain completely disappears.
4. Herbal treatment
Commonly, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be used for the treatment of epididymitis, which features no side effects or drug resistance even if you take the pill for a long period of time. For patients with painful symptoms, it works well on the onset part and can nicely work off the pain.

During the treatment, it is also important that you should pay attention to the daily conditioning, such as eating healthy foods, drinking more water, avoiding alcohol and tobacco, doing more exercise and paying attention to personal hygiene all the time.
Every patient should choose the appropriate treatment plan according to his own physical condition, and do not rely too much on drugs. Self-conditioning in daily life is also very important. I hope these tips can truly help you.
