The inflammation of the epididymis is mainly caused by bacteria. For this reason, the doctor usually prescribes antibiotics to cure the infection. In addition, ice may be recommended in the genital area to decrease inflammation and bed rest. Sometimes it is necessary to administer analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve swelling and pain.
It should be noted that if epidimitis is not treated properly, it may become chronic and even complicated and cause fertility problems in men.
