Do You Still Need to Take Medication When Epididymitis Is No Longer Painful?

Epididymitis, an inflammation caused by a series of disease-causing bacteria such as staphylococcus, E. coli, or streptococcus entering the vas deferens and traveling retrogradely to the testicles, is most common in young adults.

Take Medication with Epididymitis

Most patients with epididymitis experience testicular pain. However, some patients find that the testicular pain symptoms are relieved or disappear after a treatment period, so they wonder if they can stop taking the medication. 

So, should they continue to take medication when their epididymitis stops producing pain?

To answer this question, we first have to figure out the following question: Does the fact that epididymitis no longer cause pain mean it is cured?

When epididymitis symptoms are in remission, many people think they are cured and no longer need to continue taking medication. However, in reality, symptomatic relief is not the same as cure. Inflammation treatment requires a certain amount of time; if the treatment is stopped too soon, it may lead to the recurrence of the disease, resulting in more severe consequences. 

In addition, to stop taking medication early, some patients take antibiotics irrationally, triggering bacterial resistance, making the disease more difficult to treat or incurable. Prolonged use of antibiotics can develop resistance and may lead to recurrent disease episodes. 

Therefore, for chronic patients who do not get good results from antibiotics, taking Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill orally is recommended. The pill is a traditional Chinese medicine formula with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, detoxification, and pain-relieving functions, which is conducive to eliminating inflammation, relieving pain, enhancing the patient's immunity, and completely curing the disease.

Therefore, even if the symptoms disappear, one should not stop medication arbitrarily but should, under the guidance of a doctor, adhere to the instructions in the medication leaflet, taking the prescribed dose at the scheduled times until the medication treatment is completed.

In addition, the inflammation of epididymitis may lead to complications such as epididymal abscesses and blocked vas deferens. These complications may not manifest immediately but appear after the inflammation is cured.

Therefore, even if the symptoms of epididymitis have improved, one should not take it lightly. The specific treatment approach for epididymitis varies from person to person, and it is advisable to conduct further examinations to assess the existing inflammation and other complications before deciding whether to discontinue medication.

In addition to actively cooperating with the treatment, what else should epididymitis patients do daily?

1. A light diet. Patients should try not to eat spicy and stimulating food and not drink alcohol because drinking and eating stimulating food will lead to the body developing dampness and heat, which will aggravate the symptoms of male epididymitis disease and, at the same time, is not conducive to recovery. Patients should pay attention to eating more light food, fresh fruits and vegetables, and not high-cholesterol food. Keep the bowel movement smooth.

2. Regular diet. Patients with epididymitis should develop regular eating habits and rules: Pay attention to eating at the right time and amount, and do not overeat.

3. Regular life. Patients should have regular habits in their daily lives; it is recommended to go to bed early and get up early instead of going to bed late and getting up late; ensure a good sleep quality every day; drink more water daily to ensure adequate intake of body water.

4. Mental adjustment. Keep the mood of comfort and cheerfulness; do not be impatient when encountering anything; pay attention to the combination of work and rest in life, and do not overwork; Appropriately participate in physical activities to enhance physical fitness; prevent colds and flu, and never hold urine.

All in all, men once had epididymitis; they must quickly go to the regular hospital for treatment. Because epididymitis does not have the possibility of self-healing, if long-term untreated, it will have serious harm to men.
