The other day, I realized I had a few purple splotches on my right hip. It was in the shower, and I started itching like crazy right around there. I looked down, and there on my hip were 7 small and big light purple splotches. Well, today, I checked them again, and they've gotten even darker!
The biggest one wasn't that big. It looked as though I'd gotten an injection and it bruised...but they don't seem like bruises... But they could be I guess, but all a dark or light purple?
Has anyone ever had anything like this? They're all together. 7 small itchy-ish splotches. *sigh*

Love me! I'm cute. ^_^

could be bug bites, could be bruises. could be a cancerous lesion of some sort. it's hard to tell when 1. you can't see them in front of you 2. you're not a licensed dermatologist.

point is, if you don't know what it is, have it checked by a doctor. blotching and itching are bother generally not good signs.

Color is for crayons, not for people.
