    I am 15 years old, I don't have the thinnest type of body/ frame. I have lost weight to lose the stretch marks but they don't seam to be going. I am ashamed by the stretch marks and I can't get changed in front of anyone, I can't even wear shorts or skirts without tights because the stretch marks are very visible, I cannot even go swimming without wearing shorts and a full swimming costume. The stretch marks are on my stomach, boobs, thighs and the stretch marks are starting to rowan my life.

    stetch marks are caused by rapid weight loss/weight gain. exercising can also cause stretch marks as you're stretching and tearing the skin. i wouldn't worry too much about it, some of us are just more prone to stetch marks than others. like most things, stretch marks will heal and fade over time, but their are a few things you can do to speed this up. the first and probably most effective treatment is laser surgery, but can be quite expensive depending on how big the areas are. alternatively, you can use a vitamin E body lotion once a day on the areas (about 7pound from bodyshop), this works as a healing aid to the skin and will make stretch marks fade and prevent new ones from appearing. i've also heard that bio oil is effective, but its quite greasy and will take longer to soak into the skin. I'm a 21 yr old male and have recently had laser surgery for my stretch marks, and they're already alot less noticable, but because you're still young you have alot of time for them to heal. hope this has helped x

    I have these weird marks on my left foot! They look like birthmarks but I wasn't born with any. There's about 4 marks with one bigger than the rest and also when you press the marks they disappear then gradually reappear in a few seconds. I'm 14 now but I've had them since I was 12, what are they? I could send a picture if necessary.

    I have scars on my tummy that resemble stretch marks but aren't. However recently I noticed the same marks appear on my left arm but no where else. My friend said they looked like a cross between the scars on my tummy and stretch marks. These new marks are itchy and I don't understand where they come from. I have a healthy diet and I am 9 1/2 stone. What should I do?

    If your stretch marks occur with central obesity and a round face, you may want to get tested for Cushing's Syndrome. Cushings causes a weakening of the skin, which in turn causes straie without the traditional precipitating factors. If you are using any glucocorticoid steroids to treat an autoimmune condition, there is a high likelihood that excess cortisol is causing your problem.

    I have scars and red marks on my face from previous spots that i have had i have tried things such as withhasel, bio oil and other over the counter skin products and i was just wondering what i can use to help get rid of the marks as i rarely have many spots but alot of red marks.

    Hi I'm 18 and I've developed stretch marks across my nipples on my breasts. A few months ago I started on the contraceptive pill - yasmin - and I noticed my relatively small breasts slowly growing. I recently put on a little bit of weight and that's when the stretch marks appeared. At first they were only on one breast and now they're on both and stretching further out across my breasts. I have been using bio-oil and lost that little bit of weight but still the marks seem to develop. At my age do the stretch marks still have a chance of fading quite a bit? Is there anyway to prevent/reduce stretch marks that I haven't already tried? Thanks.

    hi im 23 female and for as long as i can remember i have had dark prints all over both legs i am white but these marks are brown sometimes they get darker in the sun also thicker as they go up my legs. the best way i can describe them is like tiger marks but do not look like stretch marks in colour as i said they are noticibly brown. i also have these marks under my breasts. i would be gratefull if you could tell me what this is and if im at a higher risk to skin cancer.

    I'm 16 and have had stretch marks since i was about 15 on my legs. They've gotten worse over the year. I only have them on my inner thighs and hips. I dont go to the beach because im afraid ill be made fun of. My thighs are big and i think thats why i have stretch marks. I've been trying to lose weight and actually started getting more stretch marks on my side. I just wish there was some way to get skinny, pretty, and lose all my stretch marks. I never thought i'd ever have a problem with my body. But stretch marks have pretty much ruined my confidence, and my life..

    Hi i'm 16 too and i have the same problem as you but i also have them on the outside of my legs as well and my bum. Iv had them from a young age and they've got worse as i've got older. Im trying to lose weight too but its making them worse. I know how you feel beause i always cover up my body. Its really hard to ignore them but i've found moisturising everyday helps me feel better.

    I'm a teen and have stretch marks, i think its a dramatic change in size around a particular area that has grown over a short period of time. I was skinny, gained muscle and now just average. I have had stretch marks for a few years. Only i know of the stretch marks, i am self concious about my whole body and stretch marks dont really help. im just talking for all those people out there who cant talk for themselves and have similar problems.

    I'm 18 and I'm 4 months into my first pregnancy. Ive always had a few very faint stretch marks on my breasts and hips, and tops of thighs.. But since becomming pregnant ive got more and more thick red and purple stretch marks, particularly in areas where they never used to be, like my calfs. The stretch marks on my hips have gotten worse and there is no way i would where a bikini. i cant even wear dresses without tights. i hear aloe vera cream is good for reducing stretch marks, ive not tried it yet but I'm going to buy some soon. i moisturise as much as possible, I'm so scared of getting even worse stretch marks, at the moment i don't gave any on my belly and im hoping i don't get any! Fingers crossed

    I am 17 and I have stretch marks on my hips, butt, outer thighs and inner thighs and it makes me very self concious about myself. I really don't know why I got stretch marks because I am active nearly every day and I am not over weight. It makes me upset when I see no one around me with stretch marks and it makes me feel like I am the odd one out and alone which makes me not want to hang around my friends. They also just keep getting worse. I will find new stretch marks almost everyday which doesnt help with my self esteem and confidence. I feel like no guy is going to want to date or marry someone like me who has tons of stretch marks. How can I fix them or make them look better??

    Sounds like stretch marks. Happened to me too. Bio Oil is good for scars/marks. Altho for me it didn't work, I know it did for my friend. My marks started out red and went a silvery color (lighter than my own skin). Now I am older they do not bother me at all. I notice a lot (even very slim people) have them.
