Pattern from shirt imprinted on my arm

On Monday I was wearing a fairly thick fishnet shirt. It's pretty tight around my arms, so when I was changing and noticed the pattern was still there, I didn't think anything of it. But it's Saturday and still on my arm. It's only on one arm, and it's not a burn/tan pattern (the empty spaces are white, where the fabric was is red). I've run into walls since with that arm and when I'd normally bruise easily I'm not.

I know this is really odd, but it's... unnerving. I have no idea what could be causing this and I get worried. Any thoughts at all would be wonderful

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Sometimes deep imprints can remain for days together. You need to moisturize the skin in that area well and massage it gently with a moisturizer. Once the circulation and cell turgidity is restored, the imprint will disappear.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Thanks so much! It's been a week now and it's still there so I'm still kinda freaked but I'll let you know if/when it goes away

Know its been a while, but I did want to update. It eventually went away, though it took a LONG time, and a sunburn turning into a tan.
