Hello mom! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Stretch marks are conditions on the skin due to excessive stretching of the skin. The skin with stretch marks will be prominent, usually on the fatty areas of the skin. Stretch marks often occur in pregnant women due to the stretch that occurs in the skin of the abdomen during pregnancy, especially in the last trimester. In addition, drastic weight gain or loss can also cause stretch marks to appear. Skin that is stretched and dry is more prone to itching. If you have stretch marks, it is very important to maintain hydration by drinking enough and keeping the skin moist. Mothers can use various skin care products that are sold freely. Make sure the product you choose is registered by the Indonesian Food and Drug Administration and is safe for breastfeeding mothers. The use of moisturizer is important to keep the skin moisturised, fade stretch marks, and reduce itching. Even though it's hard to hold, try not to scratch the itchy skin. Scratching the skin can actually damage your skin even more. If the itching gets worse, you should come to see a dermatologist. So that stretch marks do not get wider or increase, it's best for you to maintain an ideal body weight and start doing regular physical activity.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
