    I'm 5'11, weigh 170 lbs, and am in really good shape, and have a low body fat percentage, but I am COVERED in stretch marks. They go all the way down my arms to my elbows, and are all over my stomach. I have no idea why I have them, and they started to come in about 2 years ago. What do you think has caused them, and what can I do to get rid of them?

    I've heard pregnant women often suggest cocoa butter and shea butter over time. You might need to go see a dermatologist soon could be something else also.

    Sometimes stretch marks come from growth spurts. A tremendous amount of growth in a short period of time could be the cause. You can speak with your dermatologist to get more information. They also should be able to provide you with cream or lotion that may help reduce your stretch marks.

    I had to take steroids (for a medical reason) to break down protein in my kidneys

    it def bulked me up a bit and now I got some stretch marks on the inside of my thighs icon_sad.gif

    It really bothers me and I use some cream from macys. Its expensive but it is reducing it a bit. It hurts my self confidence, but I feel like men dont care that much about it

    "StriVectin" is the name of the product
    it costs a lot, but it works
    and I got it from Macys

    I've had the same problem. There's no way to get rid of them. I have found that Vitamin E (orally and topically) seems to help.
