The Testicles Are Slimy And Sore To The Touch?
I say, I am 18 years old, why are my testicles suddenly slimy and if they are touched they hurt? what disease is this? so what is the medicine?
Good morning Ucok, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Testicles that are painful to the touch and mucus can be a symptom of the following conditions:
Infection of the skin covering the testicles
Testicular infection or orchitis
Twisted testis or testicular torsion
Urinary tract infection
Sexually transmitted infections
Injury to the testicles
So that the cause and treatment will vary depending on the examination. Our advice is that you should check your condition with a dermatologist and genitalia doctor or a urologist to determine the best follow-up action. Your doctor may then focus on getting a history and supporting tests such as blood tests to further narrow the above possibilities. The treatment that you will receive later depends on the results of the examination you get.
Meanwhile, if the pain increases until it becomes unbearable, immediately go to the emergency room at the hospital because in cases of twisted testicles, prompt treatment is needed. However, if the pain is not too strong, what you can do is to keep the genitals clean, be careful when trying to shave pubic hair, and take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the rules of use first.
That's all, I hope you get well soon.
