I've got a weird rash on my chin. It doesn't disappear when I press it... 😬

Not being funny, but do you shave?

Ironmanrocks Sat 21-Mar-20 22:48:02

gringringrinno but I probably should!! It's not bumpy, it's under the skin - a bit like bruising but not...

Have you rolled a glass over it...?

Ironmanrocks Sat 21-Mar-20 22:59:47

It doesn't go - but it's in such a strange place. I can't remember bashing it at all. If I felt poorly I'd be more worried. I've just had a really mild cold for a while.

Does it itch?


CurlyhairedAssassin Sat 21-Mar-20 23:01:46

CHin strap from something? Allergy from it?

It's looks like petichae, a cluster of small bruises, have you hit your chin at all?

Ironmanrocks Sat 21-Mar-20 23:08:32

I haven't bashed it, but petechia were my thought, but why and why there? I took a pic so I can check it's not getting bigger in the morning.

Teenage DS had something like that once on the palms of his hand. We think he got it from sitting on his hands on the PE mat in school which had simply things in. They stayed about 24 hrs then slowly faded.

Although for a time I told him he must have been taken away by aliens and experimented on! grin

No itch and no abrasion from chin straps....it's odd.

Funnily enough it was my dh that noticed it at the table and he told my son it was the bubonic plague! My small son was terrified!!😂

I'll compare tomorrow - thanks for replies, hopefully the aliens won't be back tonight...! X

I had something nearly identical in my chin once, I'd done nothing to it and it was red almost like a ready deep strawberry Mark, we put it down to leaning on my chin with my hand and apparently it's a thing!! I'll attach a pic if I can find it...

TheBrokenFuse Sat 21-Mar-20 23:37:34

Thats a strange one op update us if u findout the cause of it...... it looks like a bruse.to me

Ironmanrocks Sun 22-Mar-20 08:13:29

Wow that bruise is massive lynne! It looks like I have leant on a hairbrush or something spiky! It doesn't seem to be bigger today though. Strange eh! x

Have you been swimming at all? Could be bruising from a bungled dive or jump into the water?

lynnannebenfield Sun 22-Mar-20 11:25:27

I don't know about yours, but mine wasn't like a bruise, it didn't hurt at all, I think it's just a thing that happens and it's little burst capillaries or whatever they are, you could have even done it in your sleep

I know when I looked in the mirror and saw that on my chin I immediately thought I was going to die somehow! But once I calmed down and put it on fb for help I calmed down! 😂

Redredwine99 Sun 22-Mar-20 11:41:52

I’ve created bruising like that from scratching with blunt nails before, perhaps you have done it in your sleep?

frogsbreath Sun 22-Mar-20 12:01:11

I did this once when I was, rather disgustingly-sorry, squeezing spots on my chin. Have you been squeezing pores?

Casino218 Sun 22-Mar-20 12:43:47

Have you got any other symptoms op?

CorianderLord Sun 22-Mar-20 12:46:39

Allergy? My face once came out in loads of them and then went down a few days later. GP thought it was a reaction to something

concernedforthefuture Sun 22-Mar-20 12:54:49

?love bite? Or have you done that thing where you rest your chin on the edge of a glass and suck the air out to create a vacuum so the glass sticks to your chin?

Corrag Sun 22-Mar-20 12:58:59

I was gong to say the same thing. I've had similar to this when I've scratched myself in my sleep.

Ironmanrocks Sun 22-Mar-20 13:42:41

That's interesting. I have been resting my chin on my hand whilst working on the computer, so maybe it's just that. It hasn't really changed today. Odd that it seems to have flared up now, I don't think it's an unusual position for me.... I'll just have to see how long it takes to go down I suppose. X
