Conditions with symptom: 'marks'
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'm 15 years old and I weigh 45 kilos. I'm like 165cm. I have stretch marks on my thighs, bum, legs and my vaginal area. I don't think I'm overweight, why do I have stretch marks??? and Is it normal that I have stretch marks on my vaginal area? I feel insecure because I have stretch marks all over my body. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this? Thank you.
I'm 16, 5'0 and a little over weight, my legs are muscle but I have stretch marks behind my knee. I'm getting bigger breasts. I matured early, but I'm now a double D and I'm getting purple stretch marks with some stretch marks on my hips. My mom says its because I'm a "curvy" girl but is she right? What do I use?
