Thanks for posting your query.
The pain you are having in the testicle is likely to be due to an infection or an inflammation- orchitis. Usually the pain is taken care of with mild pain killers and ice. Antibiotics may be needed if there is a local swelling or the pain is persistent.
Wear a tight fitting innerwear to reduce the pain.
Refrain from sex until your infection is resolved.
You need to observe good hygiene.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
