Rash-like mark on thigh

I have this mark on my thigh, it's about 2 inches in diameter, but is blotchy, and almost looks like australia. It is a little darker than my skin tone and has a red pigment. It doesn't itch, and it isn't raised above my skin. It looks like a birthmark, but it showed up about 3 years ago. I don't know if birthmarks can come later in life, but I never thought much of it. I don't know what it is, and I am a little concerned. Please reply if you can help! thanks. (i couldn't find category for question... sry)

By the way, I'm only 16... so i don't know if i can still develop birth marks. I'm getting it checked out, but if anyone has advice please help.

If it dosnt go away in a week you need to see a dermatologist.
You'll probably get this skin shampoo that you use twice a week.

I have a few of those also, one being on my collar bone, and i'm 30, it's possible it's a new birthmark. You should see a dermatologist, just to be sure.
