Non-bacterial? STD?: Prostate infections are uncommon at age 22. I hope you were tested gonorrhea and chlamydia. These and other STDs could cause these symptoms and Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) isn't a recommended treatment. Even if you have a confirmed prostate infection, many are not due to bacteria and don't respond to antibiotics; or a different antibiotic might be necessary. Discuss with the doctor or clinic treating you. Good luck.
