    My arms got stretch marks...

    I am just finishing up my first ever cycle of D-bol and I can't be happier with the huge gains in strength and bulk muscle I have made. My only problem is just the other morning I was admiring my "new" muscles in the mirror (first time I have ever felt confident about my muscular appearence so I am a bit vain) and I noticed on the base of both my arms just above my arm pits that I have stretch marks. They are very small and hard to notice and span no longer then an inch and a half but they are there. Is that normal? Now I know this is one of those things that I am probably the only person that is ever going to notice, but I have a big vacation planned in 2 months to Cancun and I am just wondering if there is any way I can get rid of them or at least a way I can prevent from getting them in the future. I have around 8-10% bf right now and I tan regularly, please let me know what you think
    Thanks

    just apply some vitamin E inriched lotion on them 2 times a day n they will eventually fade away.

    Get ready man because those stretch marks are gonna keep coming. Vitamine e oil helps, but i don't think anything can actually prevent them.

    I went down and bought some vitamin E oil at the store, Thanks for all your help. Just wanted to assure myself that it was normal.

    Bro The pit stretch marks are usualy the most common. E-oil is great but Aloe will actualy help prevent stretch marks. Just rub it on once a day in the pits. pure aloe would be the best but any lotion that is aloe based will work fine. I agree with pain wear em proud brother.

    I got em in the same place after my 1st cycle last fall. It's pretty common I guess. I'll have to try the Vit E too.

    get ready to lose most of what you gained, a lot of what you have in weight was just water

    I think the one at Savon is that size too - can't seem to get it past my forearms - and sitting cold, forearms are about 15 inches. Should start a petition... it would be sooooo convienient. I think there is a bigger one somewhere else... have to remember where that was...

    Yep, the one I went to was in savon. I ended up going to drug emporium to get my BP every time. Their equipment is pretty neat since you can have it check a bunch of stuff, including your weight.
