    Treating viral orchitis
    Treatment for viral orchitis, the type associated with mumps, is aimed at relieving symptoms. Your doctor may prescribe pain medication, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, others) or naproxen (Aleve, Anaprox, others), and recommend bed rest, elevating your scrotum and applying cold packs.

    Treating bacterial orchitis
    In addition to measures to relieve discomfort, bacterial orchitis and epididymo-orchitis require antibiotic treatment. If the cause of the infection is an STD, your sexual partner also needs treatment.

    Antibiotic drugs most commonly used to treat bacterial orchitis include ceftriaxone (Rocephin), ciprofloxacin (Cipro), doxycycline (Vibramycin, Doryx), azithromycin (Zithromax), and trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole combined (Bactrim, Septra). Make sure your doctor is aware of any other medications you're taking or any allergies you have. This information, as well as whether your infection is sexually transmitted and what type of STD you have, will help your doctor select the best treatment

    Call your doctor, this could be a reaction to Doxycycline, not everyone can take it. Any time your face swells up, take this as a warning, and call the doctor. Also itching can be a warning you are having a bad reaction. Call ASAP.
