Has anyone on here ever seen large stretch marks running horizontal across a persons back?
I'm asking because we have noticed them on our 17yr. old grandsons back.
They are huge! It looks as if someone beat him with a whip or something and these are the scars from it!
Now, some people have told us because he grew like 6 or 7 ins. in about a 2 month period of time last year that these are the stretch marks.
But, we've never seen such a thing!
His Dr. said they were stretch marks and then one Dr. said they weren't!
Just curious if anyone else has ever seen or heard of such a thing.
These marks are still on his back over a year later.
He is about 5ft.11 ins. and weighs about 160. He is more on the thin side.
Don't mean to sound stupid here just concerned about him.
We did ask him if someone beat him and he said "NO."
He is very close to his Grandmother and if anyone was harming him, we feel he might speak to her about it. Might, for we know how teenagers can be.
Thanks for any help in this matter.
