  • My guess would be a new stretch mark.

  • Are you pregnant or breastfeeding or anything?

  • Are you breastfeeding? If so if could be mastitis. Is it painful? Any infection of some sort is usually caused by red streaks. You need to make an appointment and see your doctor asap.

  • scary could it be as simple as you slept on it wrong, like a watch imprint or something?
    sometimes it happens to me and the marks lasts a day or two
    could it be a skin allergy? or is there a bump...maybe a build up of something in your body?

  • Did you ever find out what this was? I had one that showed up on me that sounds the same today. Mine did not hurt when I first noticed it, but now it is tender to the touch. Any info would be helpful.

  • I actually had gotten bit by something (most likely a tic) and it was lime disease. I had no idea I even was bit. Does yours wrap around almost forming a circle?
