Ok Im gonna tell you right now. Number 1...dont listen to anyone who did not get them who insists it was the creams...it wasn't and this has been scientifically proven, no amount of cream or oil is going to prevent or get rid of them. Number 2, you are genetically predisposed to get them to begin with. The only sure fire way to get rid of them is surgery. Now for the good news. You can diminish the redness and keep the marks to a dull roar. Get a scar medication such as Retinal A or ointment such as Mederma. It WONT erase them but will make them look a lot better. Ive had 3 kids and it was my first who gave them to me and I rubbed gallons of gunk on my belly! I used Mederma and it not only got rid of the redness, it shrunk the marks but they are still there, looks like Freddie got all happy on my belly LOL I also had a large 2 year old surgical scar and it diminished the redness and puffiness but again its still there just not as bad. :) Hope this helps!
