Top Homeopathic Medicines for Epididymitis

Inflammation of the epididymis (coiled tube at the back of testicle) is known as epididymitis. This tube stores the sperms while they mature and transport them from the testes to the vas deferens. The primary cause of epididymitis is sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and bacterial infection of urinary tract or prostate (that travel to the epididymis.) Homeopathic medicines for epididymitis help reduce the inflammation, swelling, redness of epididymis and manage its symptoms very effectively. Rhododendron, Spongia Tosta, and Apis Mellifica are some natural medicines for epididymitis.

Homeopathic medicines for Epididymitis.

The most common sexually transmitted infection includes gonorrhea and chlamydia. Some risk factors for epididymitis include having unprotected sex with a partner who has a sexually transmitted infection, use of a catheter, recent urinary tract surgery, an uncircumcised penis and a history of urinary tract infection/prostate infection. Apart from the above, an injury to the groin area can also lead to epididymitis. Complication of epididymitis includes abscess formation in the scrotum and epididymo-orchitis (that arise in cases where infection spreads from epididymis to the testicle.)

Homeopathic Treatment of Epididymitis

Homeopathy offers excellent treatment for epididymitis. Homeopathic medicines are selected by individual symptoms in every given case of epididymitis. These remedies provide relief from symptoms like pain and tenderness in the testicle, painful urination, an urgency to urinate, frequent urination, discharge from the penis, and painful ejaculation.

Homeopathic Medicines for Epididymitis

Rhododendron is prepared from the fresh leaves of a plant named Rhododendron Chrysanthum or Yellow Snow-Rose. The natural order of this plant is Ericaceae. Rhododendron is a natural medicine for epididymitis when intense violent pain and tenderness in the testicle is present. The testicle is very sore and painful to touch, and the soreness extends to the thighs and abdomen. The scrotum is also swollen. The pain may be contusive or drawing in nature. For using Rhododendron, pain in the testicle worsens from sitting and gets better upon walking. Slight thin discharge from the urethra may also be present. Rhododendron is also indicated in cases where orchitis arises in addition to epididymitis, i.e., in cases of epididymo-orchitis.

Spongia Tosta is a homeopathic medicine for testicle pain in cases of epididymitis. The pain in the testicle may be bruised or pinching in nature. Sometimes stitching, shooting pain in the testicle is there. The shooting pain may radiate from the testes to the inguinal region. Touch tends to worsen the pain. Swelling in the scrotum along with a sensation of heat and burning is also present.

Apis Mellifica – For Swollen, Red Scrotum in Epididymitis

Apis Mellifica is a natural homeopathic remedy useful for swollen, red scrotum in cases of epididymitis. For using Apis Mellifica, the right side is more affected.

Burning and scalding in the urethra during and after urination is also prominently present.

Pulsatilla also helps in cases where inflammation of epididymis follows a gonorrhoeal infection. The testicle may also be inflammed (orchitis). In such cases, the testicles feel painful, and the swelling gets worse by standing. The affected person may develop a fever. Males requiring Pulsatilla may also have a history of prostatitis.

  4. Hello Dr. Sharma
    I have epididymitis, about 3-4 years ago I went to the doctors and they did ultrasound and results came back that I have this. Now I happened to examine it myself and found out that i have the cyst. I don’t know if I had it the whole time or it came back because I just didn’t pay attention to it since they told me these usually go away on its own. The reason why I examined it is because I have dull pain sometimes it just comes and goes randomly. So I want to ask you what’s something natural that can help get rid of this? I would so appreciate your reply. Thank you so much
