Depends on cause: It is important to make sure that prostatic is is not infectious in nature. A prostatic massage and culture of prostatic fluid and voided urine after massage can help to define this and antibiotic prescribed. If no infection then anti-inflammatories, sitz baths can be used. It is also important to walk during the day if sitting for long periods. Regular ejaculations can prevent congestion
