To not affect the daily life and sexual feelings, many male patients who suffer from epididymitis will actively go to the regular hospital for treatment.

Today we will explain the symptoms of different kinds of epididymitis.

Acute epididymitis
Patients with sudden onset, high fever, increased white blood cells, the scrotum has swelling pain and sinking feeling, lower abdomen and groin involved pain, standing or walking intensified. The epididymis on the affected side is swollen with evident tenderness. 
When the inflammation scope is more extensive, epididymis and testis are swollen, and the boundary between the two is not clear. The spermatic cord is thickened and tender on the affected side. In general, acute symptoms subside after one week.
Chronic epididymitis
Chronic epididymitis is more common. Part of the patients turns chronic because of acute period failed to cure. However, most patients do not have a clear acute stage, and inflammation is secondary to chronic prostatitis or injury. Patients often feel the side of the scrotum pain and distension. The pain field extends to the lower abdomen and ipsilateral groin. The Secondary hydrocele may sometimes be associated. When examining epididymis, it often varies degrees of increased harden, there is mild tenderness, and ipsilateral vas deferens can be thickened.

In general, patients with acute epididymitis need bed rest. If pain is evident, patients can relieve the symptoms by applying topical hot compresses, encouraging inflammation to subside.
However, it should be noted that premature use of heat therapy may aggravate pain and may lead to the spread of infection. Therefore, it is best to use ice packs for topical cold compresses in the early days. 
In addition, some antibacterial drugs can be selected for treatment by intravenous injection for one to two weeks and oral antibacterial medications for two to four weeks. 
Treating with a single antigenic drug for chronic epididymitis may not be ideal. Therefore, many patients begin to choose herbal medicine, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment. It is a purely herbal medicine formula that has a powerful bactericidal effect and can effectively eradicate the pain and achieve the effect of thoroughly treating the disease.
In addition to treatment, men also need to pay attention to some nursing methods in their daily lives

And avoid the cold of the lower body, excessive intercourse, tolerance of urination, etc., which can cause sympathetic excitement and induce urination difficulties. Some patients have an insidious development of BFH and symptoms of uremia at the time of diagnosis, so abnormal urination in older men requires examination and treatment.
