|Rash that looks like scratch marks?|
About a week ago, I started getting what looks like scratches on my face about an inch and a half long. Two were next to my nose and one on my chin. I dont know what it is, but I assume its some kind of rash. Itching is minor to non-existant, though so Im not sure.
Im 28 and this hasnt happened until now. Its not from shaving because I dont really shave those areas (I cant grow a beard). Any idea what it can be? I couldnt find anything online.
Did you wake up with those scratches on your face? Maybe you scratched yourself in your sleep. Hope you find out what it is :)
Welcome to SkinCell.
Might be ring worm or some other sort of skin infection. (Those are ideas, not positive at all)
I usually notice them when I wake up, but three in one week seems unlikely. And ring worm seems to be a circular pattern. These are straight and just look like scratches.
Well, yes, I was implying you may have a rash that might itch and cause you to scratch it unconsciously in your sleep. I think you should see a derm, maybe they can give you a proper dx :)
