Epididymitis usually involves considerable pain. To ease your discomfort:

  • Rest in bed
  • Lie down so that your scrotum is elevated
  • Apply cold packs to your scrotum as tolerated
  • Wear an athletic supporter
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects
  • Avoid sexual intercourse until your infection has cleared
