prostate infection at 24

i am a 24 and at age 21 i came down with a prostate infection that was not cause by sexual transmited symptom. the doctors put me on atibiotics that seemed to make it worse. so i went to 4 different doctors 1 one was even a speacialist at duke regional medical center. they all gave be atibiotics which made it worse. so we finally figured out the infection was coming from a yeast build up in my body on my prostate. so one doctor gave me diflucan but only 5 pills and it cleared up but not all the way and when i asked for another prescription because it was working he wouldn't give me another prescription. i have given up on doctors because they all do the same thing and it doesn't work the medicine just makes it worse. i have tried herbal supplements and they don't work either i was wondering if anybody had been through this before and got it cured or is have the same problem because this is fustrating to go to doctors and tell them what medicine works and them not put you and you stay sick for four years now. feed back would be greartly appreciated because me and girlfriend are going to be getting married and starting a family in the next few years and i want to healthy for when it starts.

Re: prostate infection at 24

I experienced something very similar at the young age of 17. I had a nagging lower back pain for a long time and went to a doctor. He ended up checking my prostate through a digital rectal exam and found that at that young of an age I had an enlarged prostate. He gave me a prescription for a urinary tract antibacterial called Macrodantin. It cleared it up completely with no more trouble since - I'm 42 now..

Don't wash your hands of doctors completely, there's one out there that can help you. Maybe suggest Macrodantin.

Luck.

Re: prostate infection at 24

Well, no one can tell you exactly what to do. You or no one on this board has a sure answer, so try not to worry about you not being able to figure it out.

I'm not sure, but I think Macrodantin is specifically for treatment of the urinary tract. You might ask your doctor if he'd recommend it.

All in all the problem's not yours to solve, just find a doctor that will listen to what didn't work for you and will try something else.

Best of luck.
