Usually we start with prescribing anti-inflammatory medication (or you can take over the counter ibuprofen, Alleve, etc.) and recommend wearing tighter fitting underwear, such as briefs or a jock-strap. If the pain continues or becomes severe, it's important to see a physician to make sure a varicocele is the only problem. There are surgical options available when the pain is severe, which include cutting out some of the excess vein and re-routing the blood flow (this is called a varicocelectomy). Most people who have varicoceles never experience pain and don't even know they have the condition unless a physician mentions it during a physical exam.  I'm also allergic to anti-inflamitory drugs like those. Anything else?  That depends what the "allergy" is. Many people say that they are allergic to a medicine if it makes them sick to their stomach or causes another minor side effect--this is not a true allergy, but a normal side effect of the medication. If the anti-inflammatory medications cause severe cramping, ulcers, or difficulty breathing/worsening of asthma, then they truly should be avoided. If it is stomach upset, some physicians still prescribe medications such as Celebrex, which are supposed to not upset the stomach as much (although they still can). If none of the medications can be used, though, then the other treatments I mentioned will have to be used. Certainly a little ice to the area could help as well, although I wouldn't recommend applying it directly to the varicocele area.  Thank you. If it makes any difference I am truly allergic to aspirin (I actually took Motrin IB at the time which caused swelling, rash, and difficulty breathing).
