Treating the Testicles with Hot and Cold Baths
Treatment through water is extremely beneficial in curing the painful swelling of the testicles known as hydrocele. Cold hip baths twice daily in the morning and the evening, for 10 minutes each time, are specially valuable. For a cold hip bath, an ordinary tub may be used. It should be filled with cold water. The patient should sit in the tub, keeping the legs outside. A hot Epsom-salts bath is also very useful in the treatment of hydrocele and should be taken once or twice weekly, if possible.
