Hi all, I have had large purple stretch marks from my inner thigh all the way to mid-calf area. The doctor had told me they would turn white in a couple years but it has been about 4years now and they are still a purple-grey color.

I do have eczema, and had tried traditional chinese medicine in China back then and gained alot of weight which I suspect had steroids but it has been about 4years now and they are still not fading in color.

My stretch marks are on average about 1/2 inch to and inch thick and are very unsightly. I have to use alot of foundation and powder to cover them when I wear shorts in the summer.

I'm only 27 years old and have never had kids.

I have used vitamin E oil and there has been no reduction at all for 8 months.

Can anyone suggest a cream or some sort of cosmetic surgery to fix this?

Much appreciated!!!
