    try retin a it works takes some time but it works. or Maderma expensive but it works as well. Of course nothing completley removes them just gets them lighter.

    That sucks dude...I got a couple on my hip. They're pretty light right now, and I hope they'll stay that way, but they still bother me.

    Mine come and go. I got em at my shoulders (where my delts hit the pecs) and under my arms from my arm pit up my tris about 2 inches. They seem to fade and come back, I have not figured out it there is a specific excersize that makes them worse, probably flyes. They were a light pink for a while and now they have turned red again. I have never tried any creams...maybe I should...I like the tattoo idea...that might be fun!

    Look closely at any bb pick of any pro and you can usually pick em out. You can see them on Arnie in his pics too from back in the day...shoulders/chest is common. Hips/quads is probably common to. I have see guys with marks from their inner bis all the way to their sternum. That would suck.

    No worries... I got a few dark ones, and a pile of white ones...
    Vit. E cream, cocoa butter (even in your body wash) and a good tan will help...
    Nothing will get rid of them though...

    BTW, check out the AR Spa...

    try fighting them from the inside out. How many fish oils do you take in a day? They work wonders for elasticity in the skin. A great preventative for them to even start..... up your intake now and they shouldn't get any worse

    Everyone likes stretch marks on dudes. It is a conversation starter and a testimony to all of your hard work. Wear 'em with honor, dog!

    Ive never had them. I sometimes wish I did b/c they let you know if you're growing. Ive done some heavy cycles but never got ONE stretch mark.

    they are cool they mean youve done some hard work at growing. In the marines all the guys get them in the armpit shoulder area. I guess its kindof like the calouses you get on your hands from lifting. Comes with the trade!

    Unless you are extremely lucky with size comes stretch marks. I have some under my arm pits, but that's about it. I got lucky, and started using the proper pre-cautions before mine got out of control. There is really no way to get rid of them, just to lighten them from being dark red. My girlfriend works at a laser skin care center, and they can laser the stretch marks and make them pretty white, but it still doesn't completely remove them without a skin graph.

    So you want people to feel bad for getting bigger? Unless they are stretch marks from being a fat ass I consider them war wounds from growing / lifting, not an excuse to feel better. Now if you are fat and have them all over your body, well that is your own doing I guess.
