Please do mention your age whenever you ask any query in the future. If your stretch marks are new, then it will be reddish. If it is old it will be whitish, the response to new stretch marks are good whereas old ones respond less to creams and ointments. Please try shea butter or cocoa buttercream in the day time and Retin-A (Tretinoin 0.025 %) cream at night for a month. If you do not find any response, then you have to visit a doctor to undergo laser therapy.
