Stretch Marks are indented, reddened streaks that typically appear on the body. They usually appear on some parts of the body like laps, buttocks, breasts and the area located between the chest and the biceps.
The skin ailment can have causes that are not due to underlying disease. They are mostly caused by rapid weight gain or from weight changes, growth spurts in teenagers and rapid increase in muscle size through weightlifting. It can also be caused by the expansion of the stomach due to pregnancy.
While all the above mentioned are natural occurrences, stretch marks can also be caused by too much usage of bleaching cosmetics and can also be caused by medication side effects.
In a case where a black in complexion person is using a bleaching cream, there will be a formation of stretch marks in some parts of his/her body resulting from the weight again due to body growth.
Many people have been battling this skin ailment while it has been of serious concern to those who have spent a lot of money on different cosmetics which they claimed to be a good remedy for the disease.
