    Do you use fabric conditioner?
    It's the worst thing for any skin complaint. I haven't used it for around 15 years. Purchased the car coupon ones but gave most away, even though it was for sensitive skin.

    Do teens get stretch marks when growing, like they supposedly have growing pains?
    You'll have to keep checking to see if it improves or keep asking to see a dermatologist.
    It's such a worry as lads get embarrassed at the slightest thing.

    His marks are still all over his back,we have seen various doctors, not one of them has seen anything like it.

    Still wont refer him to a dermatologist though, even though I have really insisted, said its not needed at this stage, as hes not unwell in himself.

    The one doctor is adamant that they are stretch marks but none of the others think they are, so we are going round in circles.

    Doesnt help my son though, as his whole back is covered in them, he is very conscious of them and doesnt like getting undressed for PE as everyone asks what they are.

    Both my sons have these, not quite as many though and in the same region. Older son has more than younger one.
    I always thought it was stretch marks due to growth spurts or the like.
    They dont bother them at all and have faded a bit.

    Like Emerald said, I wouldnt worry although like you say I can imagine some teens may be self conscious of them.

    good evening, Sarah I know you said they are not stretch marks but could you rub stretch mark cream or bio oil on to maybe minimise the look

    Had right hassle at adsa today. Firstly, out of the 4 self-serve conveyer belts, I picked the slowest queue by a long shoy. (I could not go to the one with no queue as it was card only, and trying to use cash only. After waiting for ages, I then was putting my stuff on the belt, and remembered I had no cash, so would have to use my card anyway, so could have went to the empty one.
    Scanned, paid...and no receipt Eventually, to the wonder of the confused person behind me I got the attention of a member of staff, told her, and she opened the machine and gave me it...was walking off, then thought I better check, it wasnt even mine, it was the slow people in front of me's receipt, theirs had not come out either. So turned round, and eventually I got mine from her, what a bladdy hassle this shop was, the 6 asti better work!!
