Prostatitis is a common reproductive system disease in men

Although this disease does not threaten the patient’s life safety, it can traumatize the patient’s psychology, produce psychological shadows, cause depression, and reduce self-confidence. In severe cases, it may lead to disharmony in family life. . Prostatitis can cause damage to the patient’s urinary function, sexual function, etc., and seriously affect the patient’s physical and mental health and quality of life. Therefore, people should take precautions in daily life to prevent prostatitis.

Clinical symptoms of prostatitis
Patients with prostatitis may have irregular urination, sexual dysfunction, local symptoms, and radiation pain in multiple locations. Difficult urination is mainly manifested as frequent urination, burning urethra, and strong pain. When you wake up in the morning, there will be mucus secretions from the urethra, difficulty urinating, etc. The libido of patients will decrease due to prostatitis. Some patients have symptoms of impotence, painful ejaculation, and premature ejaculation. At the same time, the amount of semen will decrease during ejaculation, and there will be swelling and pain in the posterior urethra and anus. This pain is exacerbated when the patient sits or squats for a long time, and the pain is radiating in many parts.

Nursing care of patients with prostatitis
(1) Complication care

Due to psychological factors, poor bladder drainage tube and other factors, the patient will have severe pain. It is necessary to take painkillers in time, adjust the overall position, and distract the pain by reading books, newspapers, and watching TV.

(Two) diet care

Patients with prostatitis should pay more attention to their diet, avoid eating spicy foods, and quit smoking and alcohol. Prostatitis can reduce the concentration of local zinc ions in the prostate and affect the disease resistance of the prostate. Patients can eat more fern, tricholoma, dried mulberries, bisporus mushrooms, black sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and other foods with high zinc content to supplement zinc ions. . Vitamin C and vitamin E have the effects of scavenging free radicals and antioxidants. Patients can eat more vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C and vitamin E, such as spinach, broccoli, kale, oranges, guava, strawberries, kiwi, papaya, Hawthorn, apples, cherries, beans, whole grains and fish can also be eaten.

(3) Sports Nursing

Sitting for a long time in some patients will increase the probability of prostate congestion. When there are more metabolites in the prostate, the elimination of prostate fluid will be blocked. Patients with prostatitis can perform appropriate exercises, such as jogging and walking. At the same time, patients can properly exercise the abdomen, perineal area and buttocks muscles, and insist on anal contraction exercises every day, which will greatly help improve the blood circulation and lymphatic circulation of the local prostate, and also promote the dissipation and absorption of inflammation.

(4) Psychological Enlightenment

Patients with prostatitis usually have a negative psychology, because this disease requires long-term treatment, and some patients will gradually lose patience. During this period, the patient may also be accompanied by symptoms such as neurasthenia, nervousness, and mental sensitivity. In order to promote the recovery of the disease, patients should pay attention to adjust their mentality, keep their mood relaxed, avoid excessive anxiety, establish confidence in healing, and cooperate with doctors in a pleasant, positive and optimistic manner.

(5) Adhere to medication

Patients with prostatitis should adhere to the rational use of drugs to promote the disease. When some patients are receiving treatment, if they do not adhere to the medication or the medication is unreasonable, it will lead to aggravation of inflammation, worsening of the disease, and other related complications. Adhering to the rational use of drugs is the key to the treatment of the prostate. Only by adhering to the rational use of drugs can the local inflammation be effectively eliminated and the prostate will return to normal as soon as possible.

(6) Life care

Patients with prostatitis should have healthy and good habits in their daily lives. Adequate sleep is conducive to the improvement of the disease. Patients avoid staying up late, ensure adequate sleep, and work regularly. In addition, you should avoid overwork and keep warm to prevent the disease from getting worse. Drinking plenty of water will help reduce the concentration of urine and promote the excretion of urine, thereby reducing the stimulation of urination on the prostate and the damage caused by urine to the prostate.

How to prevent prostatitis
(1) Regular sex life

Excessive frequency of sexual life, forced interruption of sexual intercourse, and excessive masturbation will cause the prostate to be in an abnormal state of congestion and swelling for a long time, resulting in a decline in the immunity of non-pathogenic bacteria in the prostatic urethral mucosa. However, if the frequency of sex is too low, the prostate will be automatically excited for a long time, causing passive congestion and unable to be released, causing it to be repeatedly in a congested state.

(2) Keep it clean

Because men’s scrotum is more flexible, they usually secrete more sweat, and the genitals have poor air permeability, which can easily nourish bacteria and dirt, and promote the reproduction of bacteria. A large number of bacteria can easily enter the prostate through the urethra. Therefore, keeping the perineum clean on a daily basis can effectively remove bacteria. You should pay attention to cleaning the dirt in the vulva, glans, and foreskin every time you take a bath, which has a good effect on preventing prostatitis.

(3) Partially keep warm

Local warmth can reduce the intracavitary pressure in the prostate and seminal tract, promote smooth muscle to relax, reduce the outlet resistance, and make the prostate drainage smooth. A warm bath can soothe tense muscles and prostate and relieve symptoms of discomfort. A sitz bath with warm water in the perineum once a day can effectively prevent prostatitis, but it should be noted that the sitz bath is not suitable for acute prostatitis.

In order to prevent prostatitis, people should maintain normal work and rest habits, a healthy lifestyle, a light and regular diet, avoid alcohol and smoking, and exercise more to promote blood circulation in the body. Keep the reproductive organs clean and hygienic, and seek medical treatment in time when diseases such as urinary tract infections occur. Patients with prostatitis should not give up on themselves, adjust their mental state, strengthen exercise to improve immunity, and cooperate with doctors for treatment.
