White Lines Appear On The Calves And Thighs Near The Knee To Around The Vagina?
I want to ask, I am 18 years old since I was 16 on the back of my calf and on the thigh near the inner knee to the intimate part, and in the buttocks area and below the front of the waist there are white veins and when taking a shower it changes color to pinkish red, This is a kind of parises but different, I’ve been to the doctor but he said it’s okay I was just asked if you’ve ever been fat and thin? I answered that I wasn’t used to being thin and now since my period my body was rather full, I was only given painkillers because I often felt achy and I was given advice not to sit too often and stand too long, according to the doctor, is this a serious problem? ? And how to treat it ??
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously, we need to equalize the perception of what do you mean by white and purplish red veins as in the image below. If this is not what you meant, then we apologize in advance and you should consult a dermatologist because your condition is prone to misunderstanding if not seen directly.
If this is the true condition you are referring to, then these are stretch marks. Stretch marks are skin conditions characterized by visible lines on the body where there is a lot of fat, such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, breasts and upper arms. These streaks can be purple, red, pink, gray or white, depending on the skin color.
Among the conditions that can cause stretch marks are:
Rapid weight gain Puberty or a period in which the body grows rapidly Family history of the same condition Incorrect drug consumption Pregnancy Certain health problems such as Cushing's syndrome or Marfan's syndrome
This condition is completely harmless and generally disappears over time. If this really bothers you, you can consult a dermatologist and you will be given treatment options in the form of:
Stretch mark removal creams, lotions or gels Chemical peels Laser therapy Camouflaged using cosmetics
Meanwhile, to prevent stretch marks from developing, you should keep your weight stable and not gain too fast. Apply a healthy diet and consume foods rich in vitamins C and E such as oranges, mangoes and pineapples, and exercise regularly and consume more water. So, hopefully it answers your question.
