Red lines on both breasts


Q: About 2 hours ago before I got into the shower, I noticed red lines on my breasts. Keep in mind I have not gained weight, I've actually lost a few pounds. Anyways, these red lines are going in all different directions, not like "stretch marks"; Some point down, some sideways, some diagonal on top and under my breast. There are more on my right breasts than my left. I have no idea what it could be. I'm 20 and I'm way past puberty. These lines were not there this morning, they suddenly showed up within a few hours and have not gone away since. I am not wearing a bra, so its not marks from that. help?
