Is orchitis contagious and will there be any cure for it?

My bf has orchitis we both just finished a 10 days Dexocyclin but his testicle is bad and his nose and my throat is giving me a lot of problem and I feel really inflamated. Did I get contagious? Before the antibiotic he was having symptoms like clamidya but not me. We both got tempature and blisters. What should we do? Is this curable? He said he got orchitis before.

Thanks for asking in healthcaremagic forum
As both of you have a history of blisters, STD cannot be ruled out at present. Any urinary tract infection can be contageous, so please visit a doctor for investigation and treatment together instead of blaming each other. Till then please use protection to prevent spread of infection if any. All the best.
