Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Normally there should be should be some improvement of symptoms by day 3 to 4 of using antibiotics.
By the completion of the antibiotics , the majority of the symptoms should have resolved.

There are some persons with chronic/persistent infections that require 4 to 6 weeks of antibiotics. If your symptoms are not improving then this may be the case for you.

Other aspects of treatment include: (1) reduced physical activity
(2)scrotal support and elevation
(3)ice packs
(4)sitz baths
(5)anti inflammatory pain killers such as ibuprofen, naproxen

If you are not noticing any improvement then you need to consider seeing your doctor for an assessment to see if re treatment is needed

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
