Lifestyle and home remedies
The following might ease some symptoms of prostatitis:
- Soak in a warm bath (sitz bath) or use a heating pad.
- Limit or avoid alcohol, caffeine, and spicy or acidic foods, which can irritate your bladder.
- Avoid activities that can irritate your prostate, such as prolonged sitting or bicycling.
- Drink plenty of caffeine-free beverages. This will cause you to urinate more and help flush bacteria from your bladder.
