I went to Vietnam and must have got Salmonella on the last day as when i returned home my stomach was casing pain and i made a stool sample confirming it was salmonella. i took my ledication and all is fine now. a week after recovering from this my testicle became 22c and meant to be 12cc in size so nearly double. i was in alto of pain. i got a scan to ensure it wasnt cancer, took a urine test and all showed nothing apart from the scan indicating an infection. i took anti biotics for this but missed my last 4 tablais of ofloxcine therefore started another 2 weeks of ofloxcine eg which i have just finished. the pain and swelling has gone however i do still feel a little discomfort. now the left side of my throat hurts, mainly the glands and when i swollow. each time it hurts an area on the back left of my head also hurts a little. like burning or someone pulls my haïr a little. any advice would be gréât - thank you.

Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you.

Sounds like you are having an allergic reaction. May I suggest you try an over the counter antihistamine for your throat and also over the counter Advil or Aleve for the testicular discomfort. The NSAID will also help with your throat pain. It sounds like the Salmonella has resolved, but continue and finish the prescribed antibiotic.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you

Thanks for the advice. Yes I believe the salmonella is gone but the testicular pain is suspected epidymitis (if that's how you spell it) . Would you think this allergic reaction is an allergy from taking anti biotics? I've finished my course since 2 days.
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Yes, it most likely is an allergic reaction, try Zyrtec or Claritin and resolve the testicular pain with Aleve or Advil. The Epididymitis pain will take a few weeks to resolve.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
