One Twitter user shared photos of her wrist, and the wrists of her friends, and soon realized that a lot of women have the same freckle on their wrists too.
Social media platforms serve numerous purposes, and often, they help us solve mysteries, discover secrets, find an old friend or a distant relative, or share some amusing information.
When Twitter user Los_Writer wrote about a mark that many people have as adults, his tweet received thousands of responses.
Namely, the post proved that a lot of people have wounds from being stabbed with a pencil as kids! Similarly, the post of Twitter user Aaryn Whitely shocked many and it quickly went viral!
She posted photos of her wrist, along with the wrists of a few friends, claiming that every woman has a freckle in the middle of their wrist.
“Ladies… you got a freckle on the middle of your wrist or is this a myth.”
It turned out that a lot of women have a freckle in the same exact place. Many women shared photos of their freckles, and showed their excitement and shock in their comments.
People were shocked by the discovery!
Many said they have never even noticed their freckle before the meme went viral.
One user wrote:
“Yeah, this is wild.”
“I was like ‘nah’ but apparently I keep my wrist freckle under my watch.”

The reason for this phenomenon is unclear.
NYC-based dermatologist Dr. Bobby Burka, says:
“Freckles are simply skin cells that form melanin, or melanocytes, that have either appeared, or darkened, due to sun exposure. Melanin is a pigment, or color, that helps protect skin from exposure to the sun by reflecting or absorbing harmful ultraviolet rays. It’s exposure to those rays that causes some melanocytes to create more melanin, which is why the darker spot develops.”
Yet, the mysterious freckle hit does look pretty crazy, don’t you think?
Take a look at your wrist now. Do you have the same freckle as all these people?
