What is the treatment for epididymo orchitis?

I was diagnosed with epididymoorchitis and took cipro twice a day for ten days. Didn't seem to help and now I am taking zeflex 500mg once a day for the next 14 days. Am I on the right track with this medication.......also, I am icing the area 5 to six times a day.

Hi.
Epididymoorchitis take the maximum time to heal due to its typical structural placement. Continue the medicines , you are on the right tract.
Please so not ice the area, this area is not meant for this.
Also ask your Doctor about the anti-inflammatory medicines .
Have a good scrotal support.
I would advise you to go for further tests if not already done.
Ultrasonography with color doppler study.
Urine culture an sensitivity.
