Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem and the pic that you have sent I will like to tell you that it doesnt seem like grass marks to me . It looks more like a bite mark since two marks are there snake bite should also be ruled out .

In my opinion you should see a doctor early as physical examination is the most important thing to be done at present and which can guide us further.

Take care.
