Mark on neck
An_247078 posted:
If me and my brother were play wrestling and he had me in a headlock for about 10 minutes, I found out that I have couple red bruises on my neck, what could have caused this?
Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
They could be little areas of pressure purpura - essentially a little bruising from the trauma to the superficial capillaries (blood vessels).

Do not worry, they will fade quickly. A little massage can help them resolve a bit faster.

I hope that helps
