stretch marks can get worse if you scratch. try aloe vera gel, calamine lotion or a paste by combining baking soda with water. after delivery, the stretch marks will slowly fade with time, although they may not go away completely. you can also ask your gynec. if creams such as stretchnil are safe during pregnancy or during breastfeeding if using after delivery...

please avoid itching, as suggested by Sheeba Vijesh you can try applying them. I used to apply coconut oil, but in summer season aloe Vera gel and calamine should be good to relieve itching sensation.
