  • The only thing I found that works is time. They eventually fade and get lighter with time and fade out more with sun exposure.

  • If they are really bad....=( sorry, you just have to live with it. I hate it...but its true. There is no miracle cream out there. If they are deep, I dont think there is anything you can do. If they are just light ones and not so deep...maybe after time they will start to fade. But dont count on it. Just telling the truth. I had my son when I was sixteen..and he scared me up, because obviously my body was still growing. I still have them..but they arent red. I had three other kids since then, and he is sixteen now. My youngest kids are twin girls, so you would think they stretched them even more. Nope, the only ones I got were from my first born.
