Bizzare, symmetrical dots under chin

I have no idea what's going on, and there is very little about anything vaguely like this so far in my searches on the internet -- perhaps the collective wisdom of the WD forums can come up with something?

The rash, for a lack of a better way to term the thing, first appeared noticeably on a Friday evening. Before taking a shower, I noticed what looked like a bruise in passing on the underside of my chin. Upon closer inspection and palpation, it was nothing of the kind. There were about two or three rows of almost diamond-shaped dots, reddish-purple, that were almost in a pyramid formation. It looked like I'd had my head pressing into something for a period of time. The dots themselves were not raised, were not itchy or painful, and it was not a bruise.

I had not switched to any new personal care products in the past week, no new meds, food, anything -- and considering I've seen my body go through a fairly severe allergic reaction, I'm fairly positive that's not what happened here.

The next day, they were more present, fading towards the edges, and the ones there previously were better defined.

Other than the fact of their presence, there was nothing abnormal about the experience. The dots began to fade by the following Monday, and were all but gone that Thursday.

It's been about a week and a half since this happened, and I'm experiencing other problems which are likely not related, but will be happy to supply at anyone's request if they think they're likely to be relevant.

Does anyone think they can help?
