How do I know what type of prostatitis I have and treat them?

Acute bacterial prostatitis is the easiest of the three conditions to diagnose because it comes on suddenly and the symptoms require quick medical attention. Not only will you have urinary problems, you may also have a fever and pain and, occasionally, visible blood in your urine. Your urine may be cloudy, and microscopic examination of the urine specimen will be loaded with white blood cells and bacteria. 

If you have acute bacterial prostatitis, you will usually need to take antibiotics for seven to 14 days. Almost all acute infections can be cured with this treatment. 
Chronic bacterial prostatitis is associated with repeated urinary tract infections, while non-bacterial prostatitis is not. In fact, if you do not have a urinary tract infection or a history of one, you probably do not have chronic bacterial prostatitis. Other symptoms, if any, may include urinary problems, such as the need to urinate frequently, a sense of urgency, burning or painful urination and perineal and low-back pain. Microscopic examination of the urine specimen will be loaded with white blood cells and bacteria. 
If you have chronic bacterial prostatitis, you will require antibiotics for a longer period of time -- usually four to 12 weeks. About 60 percent of all cases of chronic bacterial prostatitis clear up with this treatment. For cases that don't respond to this treatment, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill may be recommended to relieve the symptoms.
Non-bacterial prostatitis is more common than bacterial prostatitis. It may cause no symptoms or its symptoms may mimic those of chronic bacterial prostatitis. If you have non-bacterial prostatitis, however, it is unlikely that you will have urinary tract infections. On occasion we will find patients developing prostatitis from lack of sexual activity. This is called "congestive prostatitis" and suggests that lack of ejaculation causes the semen to stay in the prostate too long and cause inflammation. Conversely, men who ejaculate too frequently can develop an "exhaustive" or "overuse" prostatitis. A sexual history is an integral part of each man's evaluation.
If you have non-bacterial prostatitis, you do not need antibiotics. Most patients with non-bacterial prostatitis will have already had several courses of antibiotics before they get to a urologist. These drugs have usually been given before the cultures have returned. When the drug doesn't work, the patient then believes that he has become resistant and wants to try yet another drug. Sometimes, after countless visits to the doctor and hundreds of dollars worth of medication, the problem still exists and the cultures, done over and over, still show no growth of any bacteria.
The common treatment is aimed more at reducing symptoms rather than curing them. But herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is not only reduce symptoms but also cure them. The nonbacterial prostatitis will never come back after the treatments. As long as you take the pills for 3-4 months, your prostatitis will be cured compeltely.
