Rash in stretchmarks: If there is just itching and no rash, it is possible that the skin is stretched and dry, and that is why it's itching. There is also a pregnancy rash that starts at the end of 3rd trimester & usually starts in stretchmarks as small red bumps, hives or blisters or all 3, called puppp. Puppp can mostly be controlled by strong topical steroids, but sometimes requires oral steroids if really extensive. ...Read more

Which is better at reducing/preventing stretch marks: bio oil or shea butter or other?

Which is better at reducing/preventing stretch marks: bio oil or shea butter or other?

Myth but use if help: Many of my patients swear by the benefits of tea tree or bio-oil and so i generally don't dissuade them but there is very little science to support its use. It is probably the massage, (which we know helps scars) that is used to apply the oil, which is actually providing the improvements observed. Massage with any clean oil 3-4 times a day. Silicon gel trips are more likely to improve the scar. ...Read more
