Stretch marks are very common. Anyone can get them, but they tend to affect women more than men. About 9 out of 10 women get stretch marks during pregnancy, while around 7 out of 10 females and 4 out of 10 males develop stretch marks during puberty. Rapid weight gain, family history, an underlying health condition, or prolonged inappropriate use of corticosteroid medication are also common factors.

Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin that appears when there is rapid stretching of the skin. They are a long narrow streak line that often starts with red to purple shades and gradually fade to silvery-white colour. Stretch marks are most commonly located on the breasts, hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and flank.
