Hi,

You had done operation for hydrocele as I understand according to provided history.

The infection can be treated with antibiotic. You can use anti-inflammatory medicine as well. The infection can occur in any surgery as side effect.

The doctor can use aseptic precaution to prevent infection during surgery. But in some case somehow infection might occurs.

So you should consult your doctor and you can be treated with antibiotic course.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
