What causes swollen and red testicles in toddler?

My son is 19 months old, just getting over chicken pox. I have noticed that his testicles are slightly swollen & red. He also is teething & cold, cough, & temperature. Which we keep down with calpol. Are the swollen testicles related to his current illness of teething or the chicken pox?

Good afternoon..!!

Swollen and red testicles in your 19 month old son could possibly due to viral infection / a complication of chicken pox.

Continue giving calpol.

So if persisting, it's better to visit pediatric surgeon for further evaluation and management.

Thank you, have a nice day..!!!
