When your muscles grow quickly (when being "on" a cycle) your skin cannot grow quick enough to compensate the rapid muscle growth, therefore stretch marks appear.
Especially on a mass cycle this can occur.
Vitimin E cream can help and it can be bought over the counter

pretty much only thing you can do is use creams, or try doing a little cardio to compensate. theyll go away eventually, some of mine have faded away over time but it took like 4-5 years.

Go with "Mederma." Not only will it heal over your current deep purple scars, it will ward off future ones with everyday application. Speaking from experience.

I got loads of little ones on my biceps and a few on my lats(near armpit) Also have em on my outer and upper pecs unfortunately. Was quite upset when it happened because they really stuck out, but over the course of a few years they fade quite a bit. Now i dont care about them, most girls dont mind em or even notice them. Rather be the way i am now with all those s'marks than how i was before bodybuildin. Retina-A will help a bit if ya get it on them while there still 'fresh'.

Any grocery store should carry it... Its used for preg. woman. I found it lasts about a month. Smells like soap I guess. Apply it and let it dry for about 3min. I use it once a day usually before bed.
