Patient :Hi, I'm 15 and have been experiencing pain at the bottom/back of my left testicle for the past 2 days. I was having a shower and accidently dropped some dettol there, then washed it off right away and it caused redness and the pain began. The next day I felt no pain at all. However after another day I know feel sudden sharp pains at the back of my left testicle, it has gone a little darker and feels rough unlike the other testicle. When that area of my scrotum touches a surface it hurts, and occasionally the pain goes away. The pain isn't extremely agonising but it does sting every 5-10 minutes due to movement on that side. I have not ever experienced something like this before. Is this serious, or has something already happened? What should I do now?
