Doctor
Orchitis may be caused by an infection from many different types of bacteria and viruses. The most common virus that causes orchitis is mumps. It most often occurs in boys after puberty. Orchitis usually develops 4 - 6 days after the mumps begins. Because of childhood vaccinations, mumps is now rare in the United States. Orchitis may also occur along with infections of the prostate or epididymis. Orchitis may be caused by sexually transmitted infection (STI) such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Patients can take natural medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to get a cure. Best Regards.
