Sore, swollen inflamed stretch marks?

I have some severe, very deep stretch marks on my hips, above my pubic bone, and on my inner thighs from my first pg. They were painful when I first got them. I didn't have any til like, 30 weeks. They've since faded from bright red to a silvery purple color, and haven't bothered me since. My son is 14 months old.

Lately, though, they've been getting spots in them that are red, puffy, and sore. I tried squeezing one, but there was no fluid in it. It was just swollen. They don't itch or anything like PUPP. They've only started doing this since I've been PG again. I'm 12 weeks, and they're old stretch marks. Can old stretch marks get infected? Anyone else had anything similar?

Does not sound too good to me... I would get it checked out with a doctor. It could be fat deposits though... I had a terrible time with those whenever I had surgery and had scars. Let us know how you are making out.

Re: Sore, swollen inflamed stretch marks?

That is how my stretch marks were, just like that in my last pregnancy, and they hurt like that for about 3 months after I delivered. They are almost gone now 8months later. I don't know if they can get infected, but wouldn't there be some sort of puss in them if they were? Ask your OB
