Hello Apri, Thank you for the question.
Are there other symptoms besides the enlarged testicles bag such as the testicular sac that looks red, the baby looks fussy and has pain, the baby has difficulty in urinating, or other complaints? Complaints of an enlarged scrotal can be caused by various health conditions below:
irritation, allergies, or insect bites
Do you know the doctor's diagnosis? Cefixime is an antibiotic that works to treat bacterial infections. If according to the doctor's examination, this condition is caused by a bacterial infection, then the handling of your child's condition is indeed by giving antibiotics. However, if it is caused by other conditions, then the handling will certainly be different.
If you are still unsure about the previous doctor's examination, you can consult another doctor or pediatrician to ask for a second opinion about your child's condition. The doctor needs to ask about the symptoms that occur in your child, examine your child, and if necessary do other tests such as urine or ultrasound. Without this examination it is not possible to ascertain the cause of the symptoms that your child is experiencing. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment for your child.
Please avoid using strong scented soap to clean your child's genitals. Make sure your child's genital area remains dry and clean.
Hopefully this information is useful.
