Hello,

Your son needs to see his primary provider or a urologist right away. It sounds like he has a really bad infection. Hopefully, he can see someone today. If he can't get an immediate appointment or if the pain gets worse he should go to the Emergency Department.

Please let me know if you have additional questions about this.

Kind regards,

Schuyler
