In brief: Generally Antibiotic
Orchitis is a painful infection of the testes that may result from infections such as mumps (particularly in adolescents), or sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea and chlamydia.
It may also be caused by viruses. Your doctor can determine the cause of orchitis, and will prescribe an antibiotic, as well as pain control.
