It’s not dye or off clothes as I sleep naked and happened in New York first time I live in England I went doctor and rheumatologist who says he’s never seen it
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for the information

Yes it does look strange and if you are sure that it is not from your clothes or dye I would suggest that you should have a coagulation study to have a look at it

Since it is present for four years off and on so it is unlikely to be anything serious but still better to have a coagulation study

Exposure to copper can at times lead to blue sweat and should also be ruled out by taking test for copper level

Please do let me know if you have any other question
