Prostatitis: only 30% of the cases are due to infection .the rest have no known cause and no known cure. Sometimes drugs that reduce prostate size or those that reduce the symptoms help. See your urologist .

A person is contagious when the first symptoms appear and until the blister-like lesions disappear. It has been known to shed in the stool for up to several weeks.
