Retin A is making my stretch marks worse!
I am applying this shit once a day and it is making my stretch marks more red.... it is peeling the skin away and revealing a more red stretch mark. It is also making them a little bit bigger.
Is this something where it gets worse before it gets better or should i just stop this bullshit?

Try vitamin E cream I believe it is. I can tell you that most compounds like Retin A used to cure acne or so forth do have side effects of redness and peeling, especially at the beginning, however this will not cure stretch marks, only prevent them

use cocoa butter...that shit is used by women after pregnancy to get rid of any stretchmarks.
i know several people who have used it with good results, although it takes months of application to really make them fade.

Well many feel that retin a may help to cure existing stretch marks by increasing collagen synthesis in the skin. I understood before i started this that my skin would peel around the area... that is pretty much the point. I am wondering, from anyone who's used it, if it got worse before it got better?

i used it and absolutely nothing happened. No red, no peeling, stretch marks stayed the same.

"Baby oil" one a day, and a skin cream that contains a lot of fat and vitamine E before and after lifting to prevent stretch marks!

retin-A will help if anything, but it takes 6+ months of daily usage to do so.

Daem is right, I have heard of cocoa butter helping also...forgot that one, but nothing is going to really cure it but it can help fade them..but Im sure you know that already that they are still going to be there
