    Have you discussed this with your GP or a Dermatologist?

    I have similar marks on my leg and my Dermatologist [whom I am seeing for a different skin problem] told me it was blood leaking from varicose veins.

    If you haven't spoken to your GP, then perhaps you should if only to reassure yourself.

    Fardeen,

    Mrsmop is right. You better need to consult your dermatologist for proper information. Don’t delay too much.

      Fardeen,

      Good to hear that. Does it itch? Put the gel on it always, maybe this could give you quick results.
