4yrs ago when i had vincent's angina of the throat, parts of my tonsils were scooped out. I was told it would patchup with time but hasn't. Worrisome?

No: Ludwig's angina is a serious condition that can become life threatening. Your tonsils were "scooped" out probably to drain an abscess that caused ludwig's. I would not expect them to look symmetrical or smooth. As long as you are not getting tonsil infections now you don't need to worry. ...Read more

I got a black outline tattoo in the back of my neck 2 years ago. I've noticed that sometimes parts of it swell up and hurt. What could cause this?

My friend has HPV warts on his neck, i used his pillow for some days, will i acquire the virus and get warts on my neck or other parts? A bit worried.

Probably not warts: First, the neck is a very unlikely place for warts; something else probably is the cause. Your friend should see a doctor for professional diagnosis. But even if they are warts, the virus that causes them (human papillomavirus, HPV) is not transmitted by contact with clothing, sheets, etc. You are not at risk even if your friend has warts on the neck or anywhere else. ...Read more
