Why Is Epididymitis Most Often Chronic?

I believe that most men will not be unfamiliar with the disease of epididymitis because this disease will bring relatively great harm to male patients. Especially the testicles; inflammation will often cause testicular pain, and this pain and discomfort will make men's daily lives very difficult. When the inflammation is severe, it can also lead to male infertility. Therefore, men must know the common types of this disease and the treatment measures.


Epididymitis is Chronic


Epididymitis is generally categorized as acute epididymitis, chronic epididymitis, and tuberculous epididymitis.


The common disease-causing agent of acute epididymitis is E. coli, followed by Aspergillus, Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Chlamydia can also cause acute epididymitis. The disease-causing organisms mostly enter the epididymis retrogradely through the vas deferens. In addition, bacterial invasion into the epididymis can also cause epididymitis through the lymphatic vessels or bloodstream infection, but it is rare.


Chronic epididymitis is more common in clinics. Some patients with acute epididymitis have not been effectively treated or have incomplete treatment and turned into chronic. Most patients do not have a history of acute episodes but often have chronic.


Tuberculous epididymitis, also known as epididymal tuberculosis, is the most common form of tuberculosis of the male reproductive tract. It is generally recognized as Epididymal tuberculosis is a part of urinary tuberculosis, which is often accompanied by prostate tuberculosis or seminal vesicle tuberculosis. The tubercle bacilli usually travel from the kidneys to the prostate, seminal vesicles, and then to the epididymis; some are also caused by bloodstream infection.


Chronic epididymitis is most common in clinical practice. 


First, some patients with acute epididymitis are not treated timely or thoroughly, resulting in the symptoms becoming chronic. Secondly, some of the chronic patients may show no obvious symptoms but feel the scrotum epididymis have a slight feeling of swelling, and this swelling feeling is often also triggered by excessive activities or fatigue and too frequent intercourse. Therefore, some patients do not receive timely treatment, resulting in recurrent disease and prolonged treatment time.


Therefore, to avoid an acute one turning into a chronic one, leading to recurrent symptoms and more severe consequences, patients should always pay attention to their physical status, especially the problem of reproductive organs. They should receive timely treatment whenever there is any discomfort. At the same time, patients who already have chronic epididymitis should actively cooperate with the treatment and strive for early recovery.


Generally, acute epididymitis is accompanied by high fever, increased white blood cells, testicular pain, local swelling of the epididymis, and pulling pain in the lower abdomen and back, which generally intensifies after activity. At this time, timely symptomatic anti-infection treatment can lead to a quick recovery.


However, some cases of acute epididymitis present with subtle symptoms, and sometimes people don't pay enough attention to them. Over time, this can lead to chronic epididymitis. During the acute phase, symptomatic treatment with antibiotics that target sensitive bacteria can be administered, and generally, it can be cured within 1 to 2 weeks.


However, for some patients with chronic epididymitis, anti-inflammatory treatment with antibiotics alone is often not particularly effective. At this time, it is necessary to recognize the evidence and use traditional Chinese medicine to regulate, which usually can receive good results. 


Patients can choose the patent traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It has the main effect of clearing away heat and detoxifying the body, invigorating blood circulation, promoting vitality and relieving pain, inducing diuresis for treating stranguria, which can kill all kinds of bacteria and viruses that cause male genitourinary diseases, completely cure the disease, and prevent recurrent episodes.


Men should do a good job of local hygiene and care daily and actively prevent inflammation from aggravating or spreading. Once it turns into chronic epididymitis, it is even more important to actively cooperate with the treatment to ensure the early recovery of health.
