I have 2 Q's to pose...hope u can help me out!
1) I have trouble wearing condoms. I do have a semi-phimosis (this means i can pull my skin back behind the head but any further than that and it will spring back to its position behind the head, ie it will not stay retracted if pulled past the head down the shaft) but im not sure if this is causing the prob.
What happens when i try to put one on is this: its all going fine until my 4skin is pulled back too far (phimosis prob) then it starts to hurt slightly if i pull it further, and there is a lot of resistance to unrolling it at this point too. Anyways, it gets down to the last unroll (with a bit of discomfort) but the very end of the condom (at the base of my penis) refuses to unroll and, in any case, if i let go of the condom, it springs back up the length of my penis along with my condom covered 4skin... what to do? is it too small or is it the phimosis???

2) I have very tiny red dot type things (they look like very tiny insect bites, not swollen however) underneath my 4skin. each one is smaller than a pinhead and they cover an area about the size of a fingernail on the head of my penis...
Im pretty sure its not an STD (i am sexually active) but im wundrin if it sounds like something any case im off to the doctors' this wkend if theyre not gone by friday.

It sounds to me like your foreskin is just a tad too tight ... Which can certainly be fixed when you go see your doctor. If it hurts to pull it back, don't. You're not gonna get anywhere w/ it and you could end up really hurting yourself. Leave it alone for now and let the professionals (doctor, of course) do their job.

As for the dots ... Again, i'm gonna have to hand that one over to the doctor. Have they always been there? Are they sore/itchy? Could it possibly be irritation from trying to pull back your foreskin so much? These are just troubleshooting questions and i could be very far off base ... So you really need to go see your doctor.

(And good on ya for being so darn responsible! )
