I’m still 18 years old, I’m surprised I have a brown line below the stomach like most pregnant women, but this has been a long time maybe when I was 12 years old. There is also no pain, which makes my question. Is that normal? Or is there something wrong?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what exactly does the stomach line you mean? Does it look elongated below the navel to the genitals? Are there other complaints that have arisen? What is your current weight and height?
Linea nigra refers to a black or brown line that appears in the stomach, extending from the navel to the genitals. Linea nigra is indeed commonly found in pregnant women, especially when the gestational age has reached the second or third trimester. The specific originator of the emergence of linea nigra is actually not known until now. However, many experts suspect this line appears to be related to hormonal fluctuations, specifically the increase in the hormone melanocyte stimulating hormone produced by the placenta. This hormone is also what ultimately causes the nipples and areola increasingly blackened and widened during pregnancy.
However, abdominal lines such as the linea nigra can also appear in women who are not pregnant. This condition is usually caused by excessive ex-skin stretching, for example in obese women who then experience a drastic weight loss. Dry skin conditions, poorly maintained skin hygiene, irritation or allergies, to the drugs that are being consumed can also influence this condition.
As long as this line does not appear to widen, and there are no other annoying complaints, such as itching, swelling, peeling, and so on, this is actually nothing to worry about. You can disguise the line with the following steps:
Keep your ideal body weight, don't be too thin Avoid using clothes and pants that are too tight Diligent and clean shower After bathing, use a moisturizer on your stomach skin before dressing Do not carelessly put anything on the stomach without direct advice from your doctor If you feel very disturbed due to the line in the abdomen, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist so that it is handled well huh ..
I hope this helps.
