    So I noticed a couple months back I was getting some redness under my right arm. More specifically it eneded up being 3 stretch marks at like the pec where it meets my underarm. So I was like fuck it whatever. But recently I am seeing a little formation on my upper bicep on my left arm and an obvious stretch mark forming on my upper right bicep.

    Is there anything I can do about this noise?

    i've lost a lot of weight and, as a result, have leftover stretch marks on my arms and stomach. i went through 2 bottles of a "skin firming lotion" and something marketed to pregnant women which were supposed to reduce the visibility of them. i honestly can't tell any difference after using that stuff. a little while ago, i started taking vitamin E from a recommendation on here and it seems to be making a slight difference, definitely more so than the lotions i used for several months.
