I woke up this morning with a reddish purple spot on my skin. It does not hurt or itch. It is about the size of a finger nail. If I scratch it is accumulates dry skin on it. It is not raised but slightly indented and looks somewhat like an old scar. The skin on this spot looks thin. Otherwise I feel fine, play sports. I am a male under 24.
