I have never experienced any skin discolorations like this before.

The first one popped up like a day after being at the lakehouse, after I had already swam in the lake soon. It's on my lower abdomen and is a roughy 2" x 2" oddly shaped discoloration. Looks like a huge hickie honestly. No itching or burning.

I've had that one for about two weeks now, i figured it was an allergic reaction or something and the color seems to be gradually fading, so i didnt worry about it.

Now all of the sudden this morning, I have the same discoloring on my left hand/wrist. This one is much smaller but has the same characteristics.

What should i do, ive scheduled an appointment with doctor for monday. Do i need to be worried? Thanks.
