I went to a doctor on saturday to get treatment for a boil that was about the size of a peanuts inside the shell. He gave me medicine for the infection and a pain killer for the pain. it popped today and oozed out some pus and blood . My scrotum has been swollen as well. how long before my scrotum goes back to its original size its causing alot of discomfort?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Now you must do daily dressing with antiseptic povidone iodine solution, make sure clean all puss, fluids, blood, etc.. then you can apply triple antibiotic ointment(bacitracin, neomycin, polymyin) and sterile gauze fixed with microporum tape. Continue oral antibiotics ,anti-inflammatory medication( ibuprofen, naproxen, etc..) and in such conditions your swelling can subside within maximum 7-10 days.
I wish you good luck and speedy recovery.
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.

normally for scrotal infection you will be given medicines for minimum of 5-7 days - you should feel alright by the 3rd day
