Moisturize: There are no meds that will repair stretch marks. Moisturizing the skin can help with the appearance, and the gentle massaging action of application may help during growth spurts or pregnancy. Stretch marks are very common, and we have been looking far a cure for centuries. ...Read more

Stretch mark like rash on skin... What could cause it? Treatment?

Stretch mark like rash on skin... What could cause it? Treatment?

Stretch Mark Therapy: Tretinoin creams such as Retin-A and Renova (tretinoin) are helpful. These creams are only effective on very new stretch marks and must be administered in less than six weeks after their appearance and while the mark is still red or pink. Pulsed dye laser therapy can stimulate the growth of elastin and collagen in our skin. This method works best on new stretch marks but can be useful on old marks as well. ...Read more

Plastic Surgery: Several topical options exist and are most effective when they are red (striae rubra). Olive oil, cocoa butter, and several prescription topical treatments exist, including Tretinoin.

Are there any stretch mark removal or fading creams or serums that actually work or are recommended or or are most of them just all hypes?

Are there any stretch mark removal or fading creams or serums that actually work or are recommended or or are most of them just all hypes?

Don't really work: Creams that make stretch marks look less obvious only work if one uses some sort of cream every day. So, it is fine to use the least expensive, nicest smelling cream. The stretch marks don't go away (they're still there inside the skin). Most people decide to live with the stretch marks and let them fade over the years. Important: some types of stretch marks may be signs of a hormonal disorder. ...Read more

How long do I need to use Mederma stretch mark cream for effect?

How long do I need to use Mederma stretch mark cream for effect?

No definite timeline: Stretch marks, or striae distensae, behave like scars in that they are the result of skin expansion that stretches the skin leading to skin injury with a thin, atrophic scar. Scars creams, like mederma, may help with some of the discoloration, especially if used for three to four months. Generally, discoloration should improve anyway as the stretch mark matures and lasers may help down the road. ...Read more

No: Creams that make stretch marks look less obvious only work if one uses some sort of cream every day. So, it is fine to use the least expensive, nicest smelling cream. The stretch marks don't go away (they're still there inside the skin). Funbact-A contains corticosteroids and can cause unhealthy side effects if used too much. Also, some types of stretch marks may be signs of a hormonal disorder. ...Read more

Does those expensive stretch mark creams remove dark stretch marks.... What is the best way to remove them its been here for 9 months?

No: They don't work at all. I really wish they did, believe me! They will fade with time. There are also laser treatments that can help but these are quite expensive. And there's no point now because if you plan to have more children, you might get new stretch marks. These are your marks of pride, and you should be proud of being a mom and having a healthy pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

Probably keloid: You can try vitamin e ointment on it but my best advice is to see and ENT or a plastic surgeon who can diagnose it properly. These physicians can inject it or remove it and not leave a scar. The scar left will depend on the orientation of the longest part or the lesion. It also depends on the location if it is in a muscle crease or not. Good luck! Get an appointment soon. ...Read more

I: I wish I could tell you there are effective treatments for stretch marks, but honestly the ones on the market are not very effective. I have heard good things about mederma, it's worth a try
in all reality time is the best thing for stretch marks. Over time they fade and become less noticeable. You can prevent further stretch marks by not losing or gaining weight too fast.
If any doctors here on avvo know of any effective treatments please feel free to comment on this post!
good luck. ...Read more

Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia

Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia

You choose: The choice of treatment depends directly on the risk/benefit assessment and your personal opinion. I agree with the respondents. A circumcision will be curative. Steroid creams work quite well and should be tried first if you desire an "intact" prepuce. If these fail, and you still do not want a circ, then you can opt for operative stretching/slit/or partial circ all of which can recur. ...Read more

Patience: Dr. Kohl's answer is correct. The prescription medications available are not a "magic " cure. At best research demonstrates that they only shorten the course by a day or two. This is true for otc medications if they work at all. And they always resolve on their own. Until a better cure is available, we need to patient. ...Read more
