I just looked at my back in the mirror(which I can't remember the last time I have) and my mid-back is COVERED with purple marks. I couldn't see them too well, but the first thing I thought of was stretch marks.
Then I remembered that almost everytime I exercise my back begins itching like crazy. Does that sound like stretch marks?

Re: purple markings...
Purple marks on your back? are the all lengthy and horizontal? at around 8th grade i developed purple streak like marks all over my lower-mid back and now im stuck with indented scarring all over my back and im not sure what these marks were. Get back to be if you have any idea.
I had a purple marking on my back that started about a year ago around the size of a potatoe chip it was there for several months and then it started to spread to several ones in different round sizes after a while they got scaly at the center and the purple has become lighter now. The problem is that they have also spread to my chest and stomach. I went to the dermatologist and had a byopsy it turn out to be a condition called scleroderma morphea. I am still trying to find out more about this disease because it seems to be rare. Well good luck!!
