Orchitis, the inflammation of one or both testicles, can be healed by many methods. However, according to Dr. Lee’s TCM clinic, western medicine and TCM are the common treatments for orchitis. Then, which is more reliable for orchitis? 

According to the herbalist Dr. Lee Xiaoping, virus or bacteria are the major causes of orchitis. So, to cure the disease, clearing heat and killing bacteria are necessary. According to medical survey, the TCM treatment like diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill has the functions of clearing heat and killing bacteria, which means that it has strong broad-spectrum antimicrobial, bactericidal effect. Thus, the infection can be totally cleared with the treatment. 
As everyone knows, western medicine like antibiotics can also have the functions of killing bacteria. However, it is well known that antibiotics have drug resistance, and it can also bring harm to liver and kidney. The herbal medicine is made from herbs, which means that it is safe, without any side effect. 
What is more, patients also have the symptoms like swelling in one or both testicles, pain ranging from mild to severe; they have to bear these symptoms until get a cure. However, most of time, western medicine cannot cure these symptoms completely. These symptoms are easy to recur and orchitis is likely to be worsened with antibiotics. 
According to Dr. Lee, the herbal medicine diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill has the effect of activating blood and resolving stasis, promoting Qi and releasing pain. After activating blood, the metabolism can be promoted, and the bacteria are discharged largely, and the symptoms like swelling and pain can be relieved. 
All in all, as mentioned above, I think most men have realized that the TCM treatment like diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill is the reliable treatment for orchitis. However, everything has two coins, as a kind of TCM, the herbal pill needs more time for the treatment. Thus, if men suffer from acute orchitis, antibiotics are necessary firstly, and if antibiotics have no obvious effect or the disease develops into chronic orchitis, diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill is better than western medicine.
