    Welcome to A2A, SaberOfNull. What an interesting and thoughtful post!

    Fetishes are often considered to arise from a particular life-event, one that left a deep and lasting impression, that associates the fetish with sex. Can you think of any incident from your memory that might have associated high socks with pleasure or attraction?

    There is of course a second, unspoken, question, of what appears to be a general sexual apathy, for which there could be very many reasons, including depression, some medication, low hormone levels, etc, etc.

    Welcome to A2A, Fintiout. The sooner you get it removed the better, and the better you will feel. They will take a generous margin around, but the scar will not be too severe--a small duelling scar.

    You can just tell your children you are getting a worrisome mole removed.

    Welcome to A2A, nguyenhaongnam.

    Usually you'd expect to find improvement in the symptoms within a few days, if the infection is near the skin surface. If the infection is in deeper layers of the skin, or if it's a particularly bad one, it might be a week.

    If there is no change after two weeks, it might be an infection with clotrimazole-resistant yeast, or with a different type of microorganism, such as bacteria.

    Make sure you use it regularly, twice a day. Keep using it for two weeks after the symptoms have gone, to get the last traces out and make sure it doesn't come back when you stop.

    Putting on weight seems to be pretty much a matter of how many calories we take in versus how many we burn up. If we take in more than we burn up, we put on weight. If we burn up more than we take in, we lose weight.

    Putting on weight as we get older happens because as we get older we burn fewer calories: partly because our body metabolism slows, and partly because we tend to run around less and sit around more. If we eat as much as before, it's now more than we need, and weight gain ensues.

    Exercise can of course help. But if exercising leads you to eat more, it won't help. It in fact takes a lot of extra exercise to use the calories of a small amount of food--our body metabolism, keeping our bodies warmer than the outside temperature, takes most calories. So diet control is essential.

    Essentially, you have to eat fewer calories than you want. That is not easy, and all the diet plans, most of them not very effective, are aiming for this. You have to find what works for you, and stick with it. Going on a crash diet, then going back to normal, doesn't usually work, as you just go back to where you were before. You have to find something you can do permanently.

    @Geraldtucker99 Welcome to A2A, Geraldtucker99!

    That's a very interesting article, but it's important to realise the considerable limitations. It applies only to special strains of marijuana that have been bred to have high cannabidiol and low THC--this is very different from recreational marijuana, which has high THC. Also, it will only work for people who over-eat because of stress--there are other possible reasons for over-eating, which it presumably won't work for.

    It's also worth noting that there are other treatments for stress/anxiety.

    Welcome to A2A, derell15.

    I think it's really hard to tell from a photo at this early stage. There are so many things those little bumps might be, some sexually transmitted, some not, some that need no treatment, and some that do.

    I'm not saying you should wait until it develops further, though. If it is HPV, you'd prefer to treat it early. But I think it needs a doctor to look at it and perhaps do tests.

    Have you had sexual contact with someone else recently?
