Chickenfeet markings across the shoulder and center of back. No pain or itching or hardness. Remedy?

My sister has red chickenfeet markings that go down her shoulder and cross over to the center of her back. the markings are in a perfect line (with some curving towards the back). the markings are on both sides of about an half inch gap. It is very strange. It is not raised nor is there any hardness., it does not itch . She has had it about 6 monthes and because it doesn t hurt she won t go to the doctors.
