    I have them on the top of my thighs on the inside. I got them during puberty, and they have faded from red to white, but they are still there!! However I pretty much never wear anything that shows them, so I havent been too bothered about them, but it would be nice to get rid of them for holiday times etc. when I wear a bikini. Might try that stuff, how long does it take to work??

    i noticed the effects probably within a week..but then they were at their worst then, so if yours have faded it may not be quite so effetive.

    Its impossible to ever *totally* get rid of them though.

    I got stretch marks in puberty. I used to be very thin when I was younger, some would say I had an eating disorder..I just didn't really like eating!

    When I hit puberty and went on the pill (aged15) and my weight rose quite quickly I got stretch marks on my inner thighs and hips.

    I have used cocoa butter which helps to get rid of them, but you need to use it morning and night to make it really work.

    I have way to many and I hate them I have them like all the way up my back and I don't like wearing tops that are too low at the back. I got them because I grew really quickly during puberty and my skin couldn't really cope.

    #*$#in crap.

    You can get cocoa butter from any supermarket. I would recommend the body shop stuff though.

    I have stretch marks on my hps from puberty and my the inside of my thighs have developed them recently due to going to the gym i think, the muscle grew and i got stretch marks. Grrr, they're at that awful purpley stage but i'm moisturising lots to try and get rid of them. Once they've turned white they won't bother me even though you'll still be able to see them. xx

    yes most probably, when they go white they look just like scars and the skin is thinner around that area
