I noticed today that an area of dark loose skin has formed on both my inner thighs/groin area. It is a line vertically centered on both inner thighs if I am standing. It is only about 2 inches in length on both sides but does make contact my testicles. This discolored area feels more loose than the rest normal colored skin and I have never seen this before. I would estimate that it appeared within the last 2 days. It is not dry or itchy. It definitely feels easier to press into and is softer than surrounding areas. It kind of looks like a bruise, but it doesn't hurt. What could this be??? I am a 23 yr old athletic male at 5'6 and weigh 145lbs-- not overweight or have much fat. I was thinking it might be stretch marks, but it doesn't seem to fit my physical profile. Please help! I am paranoid that it could be bad. Thanks.
