See a doctor: Marks do not usually look like juandice. When the skin color tone and hue appear yellow that is usually indicative of jaundice. If you are doing drugs, alcohol or having liver problems you need to be checked by a doctor. Your bilirubin chemistry will measure this in detail and your doctor will order the liver tests necessary for this work up.
