Re: Son is covered in stretch marks help!!!

My husband has stretch marks across his lower back. His mom said he got them after a pretty big growth spurt when he was in 6th or 7th grade. They are really not that noticeable. You can get cream for pregnancy stretch marks at maternity stores- maybe that will help a little. Unfortunately, as we women know, they never go away completely.

Re: Son is covered in stretch marks help!!!

There is a great oil made by Clarins (most department stores carry this brand). It smells sort of weird, not bad, just weird. I used it only at night. It is specifically for stretch marks. I gained over 60 pounds and then went back to my prepregnancy weight with each of my pregancies and used this oil all over my belly and ended up with only one stretch mark on my rear. I also used it on that one after I found it and it faded it to the point of not being able to see it. Hope this helps.

Re: Son is covered in stretch marks help!!!

i have a friend who is now 23 and he has bad stretchmarks on his back and when i say bad i mean BAD he looks like he has been whipped and one is about 2 inches wide and goes right across his back. he cant take his shirt off without people saying ouch and asking if he had been attacked and he finds it really funny, i think he is quite proud of his stretchmarks now!!
