purple markings...

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.

Re: purple markings...

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!!
