Can boys just randomly get a semi-hardon with out anything turning them on?

During the teenaged years, this happens maybe a dozen times a day. There's nothing "spiritual" about worrying about or trying to suppress this gift, which will enable sharing of love and becoming a father himself. ...Read more

This is a natural process and aids in healing. As it heals, the drainage will decrease. Keep it covered to help heal. ...Read more

How can I identify the sort of insects or bugs that bitten me? Small bumps with harden central, if scratch, it will turn into a patch.

Hard to say.: There are very few bugs that leave a unique bite. Flea bites are like little hard blisters usually on lower legs. Brown recluse spider bites may have 2 "fang" marks. A few others have a likely appearance. But usually there is no way to know. If anybody else has the same bites that lives or works with you then you know the insect is in that building and call an exterminator. ...Read more
