Condoms that are safely produced are wrapped in a tightly securely closed wrapper. No condoms are manufactured with diseases/infections. However if you use a condoms that has already been used you can very easily contract some kind of infection. You can with peace of mind use a condom that was securely wrapped. Some people have been found to be allergic to the material that condoms are made of - latex – if you suspect any kind of allergic reaction or infection it is advisable to seek the professional assistance from a medical professional for examination and treatment.
