    LOL I was going to suggest not wearing undies too... after all, who's gonna know? LOL

    I've heard some people find that rubbing the oil from vit. E capsules into stretchies can help them heal. Or maybe you could just try something like sweet almond oil? Perhaps keeping it well moisturised would help stop it getting any worse.

    Owies I had a very sore one on my hip. I used to moisturise it like crazy.

    Maybe you could go undiless and see if it help.

    ohh i really feel for you

    i also have one, i find it hurts worse on hot days.
    mine is on my belly, i put bio oil on it 3 times a day. it strengthens the skin so its not so sensitive. you can get it at most chemists.

    and if i were you don't wear undies or try your partners undies guys undies have softer legs.

    good luck.

    Is it definitely a stretchmark? Could it actually be a varicose vein insead? If so - try some witchhazel or cold water on a washer and applying it as compress.

    Wear men's jox. They work a treat I've been told by heaps and heaps of women.
