In brief: Antibiotics
Depends on age and the likelyhood of specific organisms.
Antimicrobial therapy is usually needed; prostatic massage can only help, not cure. Unfortunately chronic prostatitis has an autoimmune component and symptoms can persist for a long time. If antimicrobial therapy is used, it may take up to two months to eradicate offewnding organisms.
