I would say the swelling is down 98%, it is not painful to the touch. Slight discomfort in my groin but no pain. No problems passing urine. The issue that is the most unnerving is the purple color.
I normally would just go to the doctor but being so that today is Sunday and tomorrow labor day, I won't be able to call to schedule an appointment until Tuesday the earliest then the wait until the actual day of the appointment. Should I go to ER? or wait a day to see if the condition improves? Is there anything I can do at home to hasten the dissipation of the purple color?
BTW I am sure it is not torsion.
If it were an infection would I have slight burning in my urine? What other symptoms should I look for? I am hesitant to start taking the antibiotics my dermatologist prescribed me
Let me ask you this ; If I can literally touch the entire radius of the purple area, rub it and feel no pain, what would that tell you? & How long under normal circumstances would it take for the purple color to begin to fade?
Yeah the testicle is painless. The only discomfort I have is is my groin and upper back of my tigh where the testicle cord runs.
I had epididymitis in the right testicle(Not the testicle in question here).
Another question Dr., Should I start the course of Doxycycline my Dermatologist prescribed for my acne or should I wait until I see my Urologist?
Last question, Dr. Tharun,
Since I did have epididymitis in my right testicle, if it were to reoccur it would happen in the same testicle not jump to the left, correct?
I appreciate the time you've taken to answer my questions. I will make an appointment to see my urologist as soon as he can see me. I hope it is indeed just a contusion.
