I'm not exactly sure what category this would fall into, so I'm going with health-- anyways, I ran a M1T and Tren cycle a few months ago and got great gains all around, plus a huge gain in size.
The problem is, I now have stretch marks under my armpits (4-5 inch lengths and .25-.5 inch widths) and down my bicept, to around three inches before the elbow joint.
My research shows there are several, pricey treatments that pregnant women get done that work. And then there are things like retin-A topical cream (cheaper but needs perscription) that work to reduce size as well. The big thing is that collagen and elastin proteins have been broken from rapid skin stretching and now there is a lack of them under the skin that cause the stretch marks. I've gone through about 3 bottles of cocoa butter that have contained the proteins, and there is no change (I have the pics to prove it). They are still pink/purple (they go white after about a year I've been told) and embarassing as hell when I workout w/o a long sleeve shirt on.
I know I can't be the only person with this problem out there and want to know if people can recommend anything (besides manning up and not worrying about them).
