New stretch marks – what could be causing these??
Please, please, please get on that phone and make an appointment with an endocrinologist and possibly then a dermatologist!! If you have an unusual number of stretch marks not associated with pregnancy or a sudden growth spurt, you may have “Cushings” disease which is a disorder of the adrenal gland. Also, there is a moderately rare genetic skin disease called Ehlers Danlos syndrome which can cause defects in collagen production and stretch marks. This is a situation where you really need a doctor to help you get an accurate diagnosis.
Good luck to you, Dr. I
