No. That's not what it is. That looks painful lol
If the thing hadn't told me to do it, I would honestly just call what I do something akin to OCD. However, I am unsure as to what purpose it serves
besides helping me to center myself. It isn't infected and it doesn't hurt or feel irritated or anything. It's actually very smooth, like ridiculously
smooth (and this may be why it's kinda addicting to touch it lol) and while sensation in the small area is dulled (because it's like a callus or
something?) I still can feel things, so I know that nerves aren't damaged or anything. It is pliable and somewhat soft, but not squishy. Slightly more
firm than the normal skin all around it. If I move my wrist, it moves with the skin. So I know it must be something of a surface wound. If I press my
finger onto it, I get the same response of lack of blood flow that I get to normal skin, but it's more pronounced due to the crimson color. Hair grows
through it (ie. pores are intact) --but I basically have very little arm hair to speak of/it pretty much looks transparent.
While I definitely have anxiety--and while this does help to decrease it, I don't know why but my skin has never become itchy or brown. The mark is
always distinctly red. A dark, burgundy red. Sometimes it gets lighter. Othertimes darker. It depends on how much I itch it. I assume the color is the
blood beneath it. The thickness of it is fairly uniform throughout, and it is in almost a perfect circular shape that has a surface area of less than
a centimeter, squared.

And sometimes opinions are just baseless.
However, that doesn't mean that you aren't entitled to yours. Have a nice day.
