Anon - It's sad to hear that you're terrified by your stretch marks. Having solid information about what causes them, and what you can do about them will help, and you've come to the right place.

First, please read this article, "All About Stretch Marks" by one of EmpowHER's writers: https://www.empowher.com/skin-hair-amp-nails/content/all-about-stretch-marks

As noted in the article, they pose no health risk in and of themselves and do not compromise the body's ability to function normally and repair itself.

If the cause of the stretch marks is excess weight gain then you can find a lot of helpful information about healthy eating in our Diet and Nutrition section. If they are from pregnancy you can find helpful information in our Relationships and Family section. Good luck to you. Pat
