    Stretch Marks

    Some friends that I know who have taken steroids , have stretch marks usually on their arms and arm pit area. Could this because of improper pct or just not keeping up with gains? Two of them have stretch marks under their arm right towards the outside, and another has one going right down the top of his bicep. Any explaination for this?

    It has nothing to do with pct. Stretch marks come from growth. A lot of people get them from genetics. Some people don't get them that bad. I dont think there is anything that will stop them completely.

    i think it pretty much depends on the person. i have stretch marks on my biceps and my shoulders, which i have had since i was 19 or 20 without ever juicing. one of my good buddies is the same way...he has huge stretch marks on his bi's too and hes never touches anything other than protein or glutamine.

    im guessing that its just from quick increases in muscle mass.....just my educated guess tho...

    they are caused from weight gain, as well as quick weight loss...

    (like after a cycle..)

    But ..........my inner thighs are riddled...

    I guess it's like the puffy nipple sydrome, some people get them, others do not.

    Well, the reason is I want to get a tattoo on my right arm and i'm afriad that if I blow up with many of future cycles on down the road that it will look horrible. i have none right now and I gained 20lbs on my last cycle. I guess that is a good sign

    I read that they are caused by insufficient vitamin E, with proper well rounded vitamins, the skin should be able to keep up with growing mucles.

    I got some on shoulder, and arms. At first they were red than as time went on they became more and more white. I did a little bit of tanning, which really helped.

    Yeah, i get them, too, dude, it is genetic, nothing can completely prevent it. I read about a product called DMARK in MuscleMag, it's from a company called Pharmathletica. Apparently it's a solid cocoa butter product with a bunch of vitamins and stuff in it, and it's not a lotion, it's a stick! COOL !!!!

    vitamin E- buy the capsules or the pure oil and rub it on your skin
    Cocoa butter- as often as possible (some even comes with vit e in it)
    mederma-OTC product that helps reduce scar tissue formation or at least slow it....


    the pharmacist has spoken .....seriously though use that mung as often as possible and it should definately help

    fyi...yes, mung is a clinical definition

    Where them as a badge of pride that you have been able to frow faster than your skin can keep up. Stretch marks mean growth.

    My girl just had a baby and that Mederma stuff is like magic. After 3 weeks of the Mederma I'd say her stretch marks have been reduced by 50-70%. I can gurantee that no one on this forum has stretchmarks from AS like she got while pregnant, so I bet the mederma would make light stretchmarks completely disappear.

    i have them terribly on my inner thighs, a little on my outer thighs, under my armpits, and on my right bicep. God it sucks, but i guess ill take 27lbs and a couple of stretch marks over no 27lbs and no stretch marks.
