Is this a scratch or stretch mark? (photos)

I've had this mark for two days now. It's been itching so I've been applying cortisone. I'm not sure if it's a scratch that's inflamed or a stretch mark. It's worrying me.

This looks like an allergic reaction but seeing a cosmetic dermatologist will be able to determine what this is and what is best for treatment.  Best, Dr. Emer.
