Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Read and understood that you have been suffering from epididymitis.
Since you are not getting alright with Doxycyclin, you need further evaluation, investigations and additional antibiotic as well as anti-inflammatory.
Color doppler with ultrasonography of the abdomen and the scrotum to review.

Hope this helps you
