Is There Special Underwear For Diabetic Men
I've been finding ants in my used underwear. Is this a sign of diabetes or are ants just attracted to vaginal secretions?
Ehhh, ants in pants: Medically speaking, ants in you underpants are not a risk factor or diagnostic indicator of diabetes. Ants may be simple attracted to anything they can eat, and any discharge from the human body may be edible to an ant I would imagine.... Hopefully you do not have "bats in your belfry." ...Read more

Never by kissing and rarely if ever by oral-genital contact, so this would have been a no risk event even with those contacts. No worries at all about this event. Best wishes and stay safe! ...Read more
