I have red stains on my nightgown in the upper breast area

This answer was rated:

I have red stains on my nightgown in the upper breast area when I wake up in the morning. The color is a bright red not like dried blood. I have no nipple discharge nor any bite marks. My skin is clear. Sometimes the stain has rubbed onto my sheet or pillow and I have also found it on the strap of my nightgown. I am completely perplexed where this is coming from and whether it is a health issue.

Customer:

Dr. R. Bora :

Please Do you have any itching in the upper breast area?

Customer:

The colour does not look like blood but almost an artificial colour best described like the colour of cool aid.

There is no itching and no sign of anything wrong on my skin

Dr. R. Bora :

Does it happen only during night and you see it in the morning?

Hello Ania. Thanks for the accept. I think you should speculate the stain and send it to the forensic lab for the presence of any biochemical in it. This will tell you its origin, I guess!
