My fiancé woke up this morning with a bright red mark on his skin in between his eyebrows... It looks as if he had taken an eraser from a pencil and rubbed it in a horizontal motion in between his eyebrows... It does not itch and it is not bumpy.. The weird thing is.... This happened to him about 6 weeks ago as well and the red mark lasted about 2days and then went away... Same pattern same location. When it developed last time he was at work. This time it had appeared when he woke up... Is there any thoughts on what it could be?
