    Welcome to A2A, lupacexi.

    Two possibilities come to mind. Perhaps it is simply a scar that gets redder than the rest of the skin when warm, due to more blood supply; or perhaps there is a mild skin infection. If the latter, it might be fungal, in which case you need an anti-fungal cream, or bacterial, which needs an anti-bacterial cream. Both are available from a pharmacy without prescription, and you can try one after the other (or get a cream that does both). Give them several days, applying at least twice a day, to see if they have an effect. If they do, keep using the cream for at least a week after all symptoms have gone.

    Welcome to A2A, wannabegirl83!

    No, it's not wrong; but it seems you have conflicting desires. That's neither wrong nor unusual, but you do want to sort out in your own mind what is most important for you.

    Welcome to A2A, Marl92.

    Condoms should be rolled on. If you try to pull it on unrolled like a T-shirt you are likely to have trouble.

    That said, you may well need the large size. Try one--it should be tight, but not uncomfortable. It should not interfere with your erection (but of course the stress of doing something new can cause loss of hardness itself . . .).

    Large condoms are designed for large girth/thickness, rather than large length. (Length differences are dealt with by making all sizes of condom a good deal longer than the average male, and you just unroll as much as you need.) Ordinary size condoms are designed to fit the average girth (distance around the shaft), around about 4.75 inches, 12 cm.

    @mechanic Welcome to A2A, mechanic, and thanks for your post. I wonder how many apparently very conventional guys have a similar story to tell.

    Welcome to A2A, bealady21. The picture upload feature doesn't work, so you'll have to upload your pictures to a photo-sharing/hosting site (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_image-sharing_websites ). Photobucket no longer works, but imgur is a possibility.

    Welcome to A2A, imeme! I'm having trouble visualising how that might work.

    Welcome to A2A, mcm07311994.

    One can hope for friction burns but I think you'd better get tested.

    Hi, Derpcat1648, you are welcome here.

    You probably know that antidepressants usually take up to six weeks to work, so you may still have to wait to see if the increase in dose helps. And, as you found, taking an extra pill doesn't give any short-term benefit.

    But the increase in dose should also help your anxiety. Sometimes it takes some time to find the right medication and the right dose that works for you.

    But try to hang on for better days, which will come. Don't try to do too much, but instead, try each day to make some progress. You have achieved something today--you got an assignment done under very difficult circumstances. That's an achievement! A little progress each day will add up surprisingly.

    Those students at school don't sound like people anyone would want as friends. But am I interpreting the situation correctly, that in a year or so you plan to be in college? College is a much bigger world, with a better ethos, where the little cliques of school are seen as very little and unimportant, and everyone makes a new start in a world of a lot more diversity. But the same is true of the world at large. It's a very big place with a lot of niches for all sorts of people.

    Welcome to A2A, anonn.

    Most guys can't do it either. It needs unusual flexibility.

    Welcome to A2A, tylerjav.

    The first thing to consider is whether it is a haemorrhoid. There are pictures there; you can probably see what you have by using a hand-held mirror beneath you while squatting.

    The article also mentions other possible conditions, such as skin tags, warts, polyps and the like.

    You can get creams for haemorrhoids from a pharmacy without prescription, though the article doesn't seem keen on them.
