Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the details.

* Orchitis suspicion remains as same.

* As fever was there, please take Tylenol(PARACETAMOL) 650mg 3 times a day after meals (if no
drug sensitivity).

* Drink plenty of liquids to prevent secondary bacterial infection in the urine.

* Immediate consulting with your healthcare provider is recommended as this
requires antibiotics for early resolution.

Regards.
