I got these a week ago at the back of my upper arm above the tricep and below the shoulder.
I'm wondering if they're stretch marks or just bruises.
Reason i'm not sure is because i got a whole bunch of these fine lines and usually stretch marks look more torn and deeper more scar-like.
I'm talking bout the pink lines, i know i got some old white stretch marks at the same area but those are already mostly faded.

Are these bruises or new stretch marks?

Also the lines go in all directions which is weird because usually skin only stretches a certain direction.
But i'll add some maderma anti stretch mark cream on it and see if it helps.

Or, since I can't actually tell what the **** I'm looking at from the picture, barbell marks.
