My husband has a strange discoloration on the front side of

Hello, My husband has a strange discoloration on the front side of his neck. He is a heavy man, but doesn't have any health issues. The discoloration is like various size dots that are darker than his skin color. It is just on the front side, and look almost like broken blood vessels or something. He has had this for quite a while now, so it is not clearing up at all. Is this something he should go into the doctor for, or is their some sort of cream he could use to either heal or lighten the discoloration? Thanks!

Hello,I have a question about vaginal tears. Recently, I have become sexually active with a new partner. We used a condom the first time- but I was very dry and it hurt very badly. We had sex again 3 days later, despite me being very sore. This time we did use a lubrication. The next day I was unbearably sore. So sore, in fact, that I decided to visit my OBGYN.She discovered large white lesions. Around nearly the entire opening of my vagina.Please tell me this is not herpes.
