Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.

The appearance of abscess / pus coming out of the orchitis is called a sinus.
Your husband has already taken treatment , is still under antibiotic coverage.

I would advise you the following:
MRI and MRI sinogram of the tract.
Consult a General Surgeon or a Urologist and if the medical treatment fails, your husband should undergo excision of the tract and the biopsy be done to rule out tuberculosis.
IF TB is present go for a long complete course of anti-tubercular medicines.
