Stretch marks are formed during quick expansion of skin during puberty surge or pregnancy. The elastic fibres in the dermis starts to split when the growth expansion exceeds its stretching capacity. Excess corticosteroid can also cause stretch marks to appear. They are seen as red, pink, purplish or white lines just beneath the skin surface and is usually permanent.
Growth spurts, pregnancy, excess weight gain, poor nutrition during growth spurt, excessive corticosteroid use or production.
