However, there is one way to identify the cause of prostate infection symptoms and also possible treatment for it and this is by making a note of the diet that the individual consumes on a daily basis. In most of the cases, the symptoms of prostate infection emanate from other parts of the body rather than the prostate and thus it becomes imperative for all men to keep a note of their diet to keep the prostate infection symptoms in check. Studies have found out that certain type of foods and drinks exacerbate the symptoms of a prostatitis.
