How Likely Is Orchitis to Heal on Its Own?
Is it possible for orchitis to heal on its own? It will not heal without treatment. Orchitis needs timely treatment because the harm of orchitis is severe. Orchitis will have a profound impact on male fertility, so be sure to choose to go to the hospital for timely treatment. If orchitis is not treated in time, it will not be cured and cause other diseases to cause more harm to the body.

Orchitis can lead to a decline in male sexual function, or even complete loss of sexual function, bringing difficulties to married life. Orchitis can also lead to dead sperm, azoospermia, loss of fertility, and the transmission of inflammatory bacteria to the spouse, causing gynecological diseases and causing great harm to the wife's health.
Orchitis induces various serious diseases, such as varicocele, prostatitis, endocrine disease, nephritis, kidney disease, urinary infection, etc.
Once orchitis is diagnosed, aggressive treatment is required. Bacteria or viruses usually cause orchitis. Bacterial infection of the testis itself is rare. Because the testis has a rich supply of blood and lymph, it is relatively resistant to bacterial infection.
Bacterial orchitis is mainly caused by inflammation of the adjacent epididymis, also called testicular epididymitis. Common pathogens include Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Escherichia coli, and so on. Clinical manifestations of orchitis include high fever, chills, testicular pain, and radiating pain in the scrotum, thigh base, and inguinal area. The testis is swollen and tender, with a fluctuating feeling of empyema on palpation, often accompanied by redness of the scrotal skin and a hydrocele in the scrotum.
If a person has orchitis, it is generally challenging to heal on their own. Most of this inflammation is caused by infection, and patients' symptoms are more serious, manifested as severe scrotal pain and swelling of the testis and epididymis. In this case, antibiotics are generally used for treatment, and the infusion is generally 5 to 7 days in the acute phase. 
When the acute symptoms are controlled, such as the pain is gone and the swelling is no longer continued, the oral antibiotics are changed to oral antibiotics for 2 to 4 weeks. Generally, the treatment course for this kind of orchitis is more than one month, and it may be able to improve gradually.
Another type of orchitis, which is caused by viral mumps, is viral orchitis complicated by mumps. A viral infection causes it, and the patient will have a high fever and acute swelling of the testicles, which can be gradually relieved by symptomatic treatment with some drugs, such as anti-fever, anti-inflammatory, or antiviral drugs. Therefore, it is generally tricky for orchitis to heal independently, and medical intervention is required to promote improvement and recovery.
In patients with mild orchitis, local symptoms can be controlled by improving their immunity or resistance, and even some patients' clinical signs can be relieved for some time.
When patients with orchitis have relevant clinical symptoms, they should avoid self-recovery methods for treatment. Patients should seek medical treatment promptly, and after full communication with doctors, traditional treatment methods should be adopted for treatment.
Orchitis can be treated in the following ways. The first is to rest in bed, hold up the scrotum, and apply local heat. If the skin of the scrotum is obviously swollen, you can use 50% magnesium sulfate solution to moist heat to help the inflammation subside.
Drugs can also be used for treatment, and patients can also choose traditional Chinese medicines such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory pill to achieve anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
When the pain is severe, the painkillers are ineffective, and the spermatic cord can be closed on the affected side. Systemic drugs should be broad-spectrum or gram-negative bacteria-sensitive antibiotics, such as penicillin, gentamicin, and various cephalosporins.
For orchitis, surgical intervention is generally rarely used. If the effect of repeated antibiotic treatment is poor and the local swelling is obvious, incision, drainage, or orchiectomy is required.
