I post this not as a cry for sympathy, but as a means to find info on the subject. I post in this forum because i believe my stretch marks are steroid induced.
Basically its gotten fucking ridiculous. What started out as a few lines i could confidently say where due to fast muscle growth have got completely out of control. I now have stretch marks starting at my shoulder and extending all the way down to my elbow and over my biceps, such that wearing t-shirts is getting problematic.
I dont really know why ive got them either. I’m not even that big by T-Nation standards, maybe a 3 on the ‘rate my physique’ section. Iv’e done 2 cycles in the past, a dbol only (yes, i know), a test/dbol and am currently on an avavar cycle. I think it might be down to poor collagen synthesis? Who knows.
Does anyone else have this problem, and what did you do to help reduce its appearance. I know they’ll never fade completly, and using bio-oil type lotions can help - but how did you deal with it, and has anyone else got it to the same extent i have? I’m only 22 and am a student, so topless activity features fairly often…

Cheers for any help.
