Hiya I've got like either a groin or scrotum pain I've had

This answer was rated:

Hiya I've got like either a groin or scrotum pain I've had for a just over a week, it's not bothering massively just aches So don't know what the best action to take was
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: Just about a week or so
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No not really like I said it's just like a slight ache really on the right hand side

What is your age?

Do you have any swelling, redness, tenderness in the groin/scrotum?

Are you exposed to unsafe sex?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
22 and I don't think there is any redness much compared to what I've been used to seeing
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I had it protected but obviously caught something otherwise

The following would help you;

1) Ice bag

2) Ibuprofen

3) Lidocaine cream.

All these are without a prescription.

Hopefully, these will take care of your symptoms.

If the symptoms persist or further aggravate you would need an ultrasound and an STI screening at the local GUM clinic.

You may need a course of antibiotics.

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.

Ice bag is done 5 minutes at a time for three times a day.

Ibuprofen is taken 400 mg three times a day with meals.

Lidocaine gel is applied three times a day.

Alright not a worry, so from your prospective what does it seem to be just ache that needs treatment
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Alright cheers ***** ***** the end do you think it could be just a ache that needs to be cured

Yes, I do not feel it is anything serious.

This is likely to be groin strain and should get better with the above treatment.
