Can the human body sympathetically develop scars?

My fiancée has a distinctive scar on her nose. We are (obviously) very close and emotionally-bonded, and spend a great deal of time looking at each other. My nose has recently developed a matching skin depression in mirror image

If someone told me this, I would be extremely skeptical, but I cannot account for it. No wound was sustained. It was not pink or bleeding at any point. I have never before developed an unexplained skin flaw on my face. I just suddenly have an elongated "scar", perfectly matching hers, on the opposite side of my nose.
Is this a bizarre coincidence, or could there be something more?
