Gah, I keep meaning to post about this and forgetting.
So about... I guess three weeks ago, maybe a little more, I got this weird little mark on my upper left thigh, high up and near the inside of my leg (basically right below where the leg meets the hip). It looked pretty much exactly like a bug bite -- pink, with a little raised bit in the middle, so I figured it was just a mosquito or something and left it alone.
Rather than go away, though, it's simply kind of faded, so now it's this little patch of skin that's just barely darker than the rest, with a tiny sort of dot in the center where the raised bit was (it's not there anymore, it's just a dot). It doesn't itch or hurt or feel like anything at all, and I've felt absolutely fine since then physically except for having my period this week and getting a random stomachache today.
Any ideas, kids? I don't really want to spend 60 bucks at the doctor when I have no symptoms of anything, but it seems really weird that this thing is still there. I'd take a picture, but it's seriously so faint that I don't think the camera I have would pick it up.
eta Oops, forgot to mention that it's also kind of big. I thought it was a big bite at first. It's an oblong patch of skin about an inch or an inch and a half by half an inch.
eta Edited to clarify further. Yikes.
