Women are sharing photos of the identical freckle on their wrist — Check your wrist now!
Freckles are small spots that appear on the skin as a result of both exposures to the sun rays and genetic predisposition. While they do fade over time, they don’t totally disappear – they are like glitter on a skin.
Freckles are harmless and common, but what is rare about them is that it is hard for people to have one unique freckle in the same location. At least that is what people used to think but recently, a viral and enigmatic thing has hit the internet after a collage of photos were shared online showing several people with same distinct little freckle right in the center of their wrist.
The photos were shared by a Twitter user known as @aarynwhitley who captioned them with the following words:
“Ladies… you got a freckle on the middle of your wrist or is this a myth?”
As it turned out, it is a common phenomenon, as other Twitter users joined in claiming to have a freckle on the middle of their wrists.
The tweet becomes a sensation and racked up over 50,000 likes, 10,000 comments, and 20,000 retweets. It occurred that it is not only something experienced by women as there were also some comments from men saying they have the same freckle in the middle of their wrists but had never bothered to check.
Tweeter users shared their amusement:
“WTF,” asked one user known as @lenatheplug, while one joked that the government was behind it, “It’s the government!!!,” @ElizabethUyong tweeted.
Other comments include @Freyyx “Low key freaking out.”
While @kayla_obrienn seemed to agree that it was the government’s job by tweeting “It’s where they chip us.”
Some Netizens are not taking this seriously, they even shared their own funny thoughts and theories:
Meanwhile, a Twitter user even joked about it by sharing a photo of their dog having a black dot on his wrist.
If you have a freckle on your wrist don’t worry, as mentioned on the outset, it is the combination of genetic tendency and sun exposure. And since the wrists are usually more exposed to sunlight than most other parts of the body, which is why the freckles appear commonly on the wrist.
While that answer how they appear, it doesn’t cover why freckles are common to women than men.
