What is the cause for bruise or skin discoloration on my chin ?

i noticed dime sized dark skin discoloration on my chin after a shower today. it tapers off on one side Im not sure if it was there when i woke up. What might of caused this and should i be worried? could it be ringworm? It is raised a little bit from the surrounding skin and is sensitive to the touch but does not hurt. I think it might just be a bruise but i dont know.

Thanks for query,
As it appeared all of a sudden ringworm can not be there.
You might have something bite causing locallized allergy,
It may be bruise due to some scratch mark.
Take antihistamine and apply moisturizing cream.
Ok and bye.
