Weird bruise on forearm with a white center (pictures).

Hello! I have had this bruise for about a week now and didn't really pay attention to it, but it's sticking out like a sore thumb and is starting to make me a little nervous.

It doesn't hurt when I push down, it's pretty flat, and it has the basic red coloring that I normally get from a bruise, only this one has a strange white center. o_0...

I work in a large factory freezer and get slammed around all the time, but most bruises appear on my legs. I THINK I've had bruises like this one (with white centers) before on my legs, but now I can't remember.

There's no puncture wound or dot in the middle that would indicate that it's a spider bite, and there's nothing out of the ordinary that I have been doing. I'm stress free and get plenty of sleep and water. No alcohol, drugs, wild sex, etc...

I tried googling "bruise with white center" or "white bruise" but can't find anything that looks like what I have. I'm pretty pale and it's kind of embarrassing to have, so I was just wondering what you guys were thinking.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

It looks like a bruise. The center does not look white, it looks grey/green, like the color a bruise turns after a few days. Kind of looks like you hit a sharp corner with your arm.

I would not be concerned about it. :)
