itchy skin causing hickey like marks??

so the underside of my breasts itched, i scratched, then checked it out to see if i had a bite/hive/whatever-  i have a rash/bruise that looks like a hickey.  It is not an actualy rash but my skin is mottled and really a hickey is the best comparison i have.

is this weird? do you think this means stretch marks are on the way down there? or just an increased blood flow thing?

thanks!

  • It's probably just from your scratching too hard....I did that to my legs a while back when I wasn't pregnant!

  • how big is it - and it's round?  Is it red all throughout or just kind of around the edge?

  • may be the starts of ringworn, due to the x-cess moisture under there.

    that was going to be my guess, which is why I asked the questions I did.

  • I got the same thing under my breasts during my first trimester. Its from scratching too much! They went away after i stopped and I have no stretch marks yet so dont worry about that! GL

    no  -  it is def like a bruise, not a fungal infection or rash or anything.   It isn't round, but the shape/size of the area i scratched is bruised (not consistent color either but reddish spots just like a hickey.  This morning it is already faded a bit

    thanks ladies

  • About two weeks ago, I thought I had this too; it was itchy and I thought it looked like little blood vessels had burst or something, kind of like a hickey. Now, once they've grown a bit, I realize it's stretch marks! I suppose the itching was from the stretching and fast growth, and the "hickey" is now just a stretch mark :( -- my first ones of the pregnancy!
