Brief Answer:

Could be due to tight clothes.

Detailed Answer:


In my opinion, this is due to tight clothing and should be clear a few weeks after you wear loose clothes.

There is congestion in the blood vessels with micro bleeding causing this picture.

No additional treatment will be required. Please get Complete blood counts also to rule out any discrepancy.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
