Treatment Of Post Mumps Orchitis?
Good night, I have a mumps in my lower part and my ears have healed but my testicles are enlarged to the right, what should I do, please input …
Hello, thanks for the question to Aldookter
Mumps is a disease caused by a Mumps virus infection. In most people, this Mumps virus infection only manifests as an enlarged parotid gland (parotitis / mumps), but in some other cases, complications can occur, one of which is orchitis or inflammation of the testes.
This orchitis can occur in 15-30% of men who have a Mumps virus infection. Because it is a viral infection, the treatment is supportive and symptomatic therapy (therapy to reduce symptoms). There is no specific therapy for orchitis due to Mumps virus infection. The following are recommended therapies:
rest in bed scrotal elevation (scrotal padding with a small pillow or a rolled-up towel and place it between your legs when you lie down) compress scrotum with a cold compress (place ice cubes that have been wrapped in a thin towel over a scrotum that has been propped up like on point number 2, compress for 10-15 minutes 4 times a day until the pain subsides) pain medication consumption (you can take pain medication that you can buy freely such as paracetamol) If the steps above cannot relieve your pain, you can check yourself to the doctor for a stronger medicine that can only be redeemed by a doctor's prescription. This condition will usually improve by itself in 3-10 days.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
