A hydrocele is increased vasculature (veins) around the testis. This can be from a blunt trauma injury that causes swelling/hydrocele around the testis. Sometimes it can also be caused by an infection, hence the treatment with antibiotics. The usual antibiotic used does not contain penicillen. Ensure that your doctor is aware of his allergy to penicillen. This condition usually resolves by itself in a week or two.
