Hi, I have noticed in the last couple of days that I have a strange red almost marble effect skin pattern on my lower back. It looks like what happens when you press a hot water bottle to your skin for a prolonged period, and in fact, I thought this was what it was! I have noticed the pattern before on my stomach, and as I have ulcerative colitis, have not thought anything of it, as I used to regulary use hot water bottles to ease the pain. But i'm beginning to wonder, as it has also appeared on the top of my thighs. Due to my illness, I haven't been very active up until very recently, so I wondered if it was a circualtion problem? Anyone with the same symptoms out there? Thanks! :confused:
