    I seem to have a shit ton of stretch marks on my bicep and some on my chest, anyone have this same problem? I might just be getting big too fast. I've been using cocoa butter, intensive care lotion, vitamin e to try and whiten them out but it doesn't seem to be effective, might have to make an appointment with the dermatologist soon.

    It's pretty much the same on the other side as well.

    :werd: Not much you can do about it. Those creams and lotions only work half of the time. After a year or so though, the stretch marks will lose their redness and just become white so they will not be as visible.

    Well you're doing something right. I got my first stretch mark this week, and I am proud of it.

    I got a ton of them when I lost 40lbs in a week. Blows ass. I've tried getting them to fade with laser treatments and everything. They aren't as bad as they used to be but they're still purple and prevalent. :wtc: that was 2 years ago

    When I first started lifting in High School I got them pretty badly, but not as bad as you. What helped was getting liqui-gel vitamin-E caps and breaking them open and rubbing the liquid contents on my stretch marks twice a day.

    The best thing you can do though is just wait for them to die down... Eventually they will go white. In the mean-time, try hitting the tanning bed. A tan will make them less obvious, especially since you look somewhat pale.
