    So the last 2 days I'm pretty sure I have the thickest stretch mark of all time ripped through my skin (JUST what I needed!). Anyway it happened so fast and its so thick and it hurts! It even hurts to touch it. Anyone else have painful stretchmarks, and do you know anything that makes it stop hurting??

    I got a bunch when the baby dropped down... They are so itchy and have sharp painslol... I find the coco butter feels good, not the moisturizer, it is like a paste kind of? Make sense?

    Oooo sounds painful, bit of a random but try some aloe vera lotion or aftersun if you've got it. That should take the sting away a bit hun

    I find them very itchy and often painful when they first appear, especially when they turn up purple. I use like savlon/anticeptic cream - makes me stop thinking about it for a bit so I don't scratch as much. - I go round the house without clothes on my bump too as I find they irritate things more.

    thanks girls, I'll try the aloe vera and the anaseptic. I've been using coca butter and it makes it less itchy but doesn't do much for the stinging-ness factor

    I had one just like that on my erm....found it while tidying the "lady garden", thought it was an ingrowing hair but looks more like I was struck by lightening:rofl::blush:

    I'm mortified that you can even get them "there":dohh:

    I have got loads at the bottom of my bump now, all in the last couple of weeks, and they are really sore and often itchy but too sore to scratch. It's even more annoying as both my bump support and all my mat trousers tend to press on them. Ouchie.
