Hello Sahlan, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
White streaks on the skin (stretch marks) often appear on the body located concentrated fat, such as breasts, upper abdomen, upper arms, buttocks, and thighs. This condition can be caused by pregnancy, a drastic increase in body weight, a history of stretch marks on family members, puberty, and inappropriate consumption of corticosteroid drugs.
While varicose veins are dilation of veins caused by the accumulation of blood in these vessels. Varicose veins are characterized by veins that are dark purple or blue, and appear swollen or prominent, and most often occur in the area of the legs, especially the calves, pelvis, anus (hemorrhoids), vagina, uterus, or esophagus.
If the strokes you have are a mark mark, the display is worried, because the strokes are harmless and will normally disappear in months or years without requiring special treatment. However, if these strokes interfere with your appearance, then I suggest you consult directly with a dermatologist so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now so that stretch marks don't develop:
Maintain ideal body weight, and do it gradually if you want to lose weight, not reduced by more than half a kilogram per week. Exercise regularly Eat foods that are high in fiber, low in salt, and rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, protein, and zinc. Maintain skin softness by applying moisturizer regularly after bathing. Avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time, and try to move every 30 minutes. That's the information I can give, hopefully it can help you.
