  • Could it be the type of soap you are using? Or maybe rub some lotion on your stretch marks after every shower? Just a few suggustions...if your still concerned ask your OBGYN! Thats what they are there for!! Good Luck!

  • I didn't get stretch marks on my belly but sometimes after a hot shower I would get real itchy almost painful. I used cetaphil lotion and it helped.

  • I would think that you are getting more stretch marks which burns like crazy. Your still stretching and using perfumed soaps and lotions can just irritate it.
