Q:

how bad can strech marks can get? i am feeling i am developing worst stretch marks on my whole belly. really red in colour? will they fade at all?



Subha

it'll really take much days to heal. it won't disappear completely, but it'll fade.. try bio oil

Prachi Arora

red marks.will turn into light skin coloured marks..start putting coconut oil on them... later u can try rubbing basil leaves on them

Archana Mudaliyar

u can try using bio oil , u can mix it with olive oil as it's a bit expensive. it will help to keep you from itching keeping your skin moisturised.

Yes they can be ugly dark streaks of red and purple. Do apply a vitamin E based cream or lotion twice a day and continue doing so even post delivery for six months. They do fade but some hint of whitish silvery marks can always remain.
