  • Yep... I have stretch marks and not from pregnancy, I just have em natural and when I regained 20 pounds after losing 75 last year, they itched and I was scratching so bad they were turning almost bloody. Try and get some ointment and soothing lotion but make sure it doesnt contain any bad ingredients, go as natural as possible so you dont irritate the skin.

  • I had the same problem during my pregnancy. Try adding some lotion to them after taking a good bath....that's normally what helped me.
