Painful Stretch Marks On Inner Thighs?

I have stretch marks on my inner thighs and when I run wearing shorts they burn horribly and turn bright red. Now i think they're starting to scar because it looks
like the tops of the marks are scabbing over. I am overweight for my age & height (13 + 5' 9") but i'm trying to eat healthy and lose weight. I dont know what to do
and i desperately need help because I play sports and if i'm in pain i cant play very well. help please?

If you have an inner thigh rash, here are the possible skin disorders that could be causing it: Sweat Rash: A person can get a rash due to sweat, mostly during
summers, and a person who has increased fat on thighs has more chances of getting the sweat rash. It occurs mostly along the folds of the skin, and one can
develop inner thigh rash from running coupled with poor hygiene as well. Bad Clothing: Clothing made of synthetic material, or which has elastic which fits tightly
on the skin or rubs against the skin can give a person inner thigh rash. It can also be caused due to chemicals, like latex or rubber in the clothing. A person can
also develop allergic reaction, to dyes or chemicals used in the clothing and get an inner thigh rash. Children using diapers, many times develop diaper rash.
Cosmetics: A person might get allergies due to a certain chemicals in cosmetics, like lotion, or due to a specific soap or detergent. If you are using some new
product, after which you have developed the inner thigh rash, then discontinue the use of such a product. Poison Ivy/Sumac: Poison ivy, poison sumac or poison
oak, on contact, can give a person a rash, which leads to severe itching. One can get such a rash when traveling in the wild, or from a pet. Heat Rash: Due to
heat, or heat combined with humidity, a person many times gets heat rashes or boils. The possibility of inner thigh rash in such weather is high, due to increased
sweating. Jock Itch/Fungal Infection: Jock itch (tinea cruris), is a type of fungal infection of ringworm. The symptoms of jock itch are itching in the thigh skin folds,
red or scaly rashes which can blister and ooze. The patches of jock itch, have sharply defined edges which are usually red in color with normal skin color in the
center of the patch. Learn more about, how to cure jock itch. Shingles: In shingles, a person experiences pain, and itching, burning sensation in a body part. Later
on, the person develops red bumps or rashes in the skin area. If you experience such symptoms, then you need to visit a doctor for the treatment. Insect Bites:
One can get bumps or rash on inner thigh due to insect bites, like ants, mosquitoes, or bed bugs. The common insect bites go away on their own after few hours,
but if the symptoms become worse seek medical help. If you get small red bumps on the skin, due to tick bites on your legs, it is a skin condition called rocky, for
which medical treatment is required. STD: Sexually transmitted disease (STD) like herpes, syphilis or warts; can cause inner thigh rash in men or women. The
symptoms of these diseases differ, but they mostly occur in or around the genital areas, and can spread to areas below the groin, like inner thigh, so one should
seek immediate medical care in such cases. Inner Thigh Rash Treatment If you are experiencing itching due to inner thigh rash, the first concern is to stop the
itching-scratching. Here, are some home remedies and medical treatment one needs to approach: To soothe the rash or bumps on the inner thigh, apply ice
every few hours, or wash with cold water and pat the skin dry with a towel You can apply a soothing lotion to the affected area, natural aloe gel is the best
remedy. Cut a leaf of aloe vera lengthwise and apply the fleshy part of the leaf on the rashes Wear loose fitting and clothes made of cotton. And, at home you can
always wear shorts or avoid wearing pants After showering or bathing, dry the groin and thigh area completely If you get sweat or heat rashes, you can use
talcum powder to prevent further aggravating the rash. Talcum will help to dry out, and soothe the rash. There are talcum powders available at the supermarket,
which contain mint and have extra cooling effect which you can opt for For skin rash due to fungal infections, use anti-fungal powders or cream twice in a day

or heat, or insect bites, can be gotten rid of with some above home remedies. However, if the rash is not getting better within some days, or you have inner thigh
rash with skin abnormalities in or around your genital area, seek immediate medical help.

There are creams out there that can help get rid of your stretch marks, but you need to find the right one. I found this on the site I put in the source box below:
Things to look for in a stretch mark cream There are a lot of creams and ointments out there that claim to remove stretch marks. The best way to fight stretch
marks is to increase your skins flexibility before your stretch marks start appearing by using a topical cream on the area before the skin starts to show stretch
marks. If you already have stretch marks, hope is not lost. There are creams out there that contain ingredients that help heal the skin while minimizing scar tissue.
Some of the key ingredients that you will want to make sure your cream contains are: Vitamin A Palmitate Vitamin A is an essential vitamin and is best known for
having positive effects on vision. However Vitamin A is just as important to the largest organ; the skin. Clinical studies have shown vitamin A to have properties
that block the absorption of harmful UVA and UVB rays, as well as a stimulating effect on cell regeneration. It has been clinically shown to improve the
appearance of striae (stretch marks) and regulate epidermal (skin) cell growth. Aloe Vera Extract Aloe vera has been shown in clinical studies to have a positive
effect on wound healing and holds anti-inflammatory properties. As stretch marks start out as microscopic tears in skin layers due to overstretching of the dermis,
aloe vera helps heal these small wounds without causing scar tissue to form, effectively preventing the appearance of stretch marks. Aloe vera has been used for
thousands of years by the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs, Indians and Chinese to decrease the appearance of scars and to moisturize and heal skin. This
extract from the aloe leaf protects skin from environmental factors and promotes skin regeneration. Grapefruit Seed Extract Grapefruit seed extract is a natural
antibiotic used for many different types of skin ailments. It is a powerful ingredient to aid in the healing of skin damage. Grapefruit seed extract helps to restore
damaged collagen and elastin, which strengthens and retextures the skin. As collagen and elastin are responsible for the skins elasticity, improving and
stimulating production of the connective tissue cells will prevent skin from tearing and thus prevent the formation of stretch marks. The condition of the skins
connective tissue also dictates how well the skin contracts after pregnancy. So not only does this compound improve the condition of your stretching skin, after
the delivery it will also aid in the contraction of your skin to its previous appearance. DL-Penthenol DL-Penthenol is the scientific name for pro-vitamin B5. It has
healing properties on damaged skin as it works to improve the structure of both the lower and upper skin layers. DL-Panthenol soothes skin while stimulating cell
growth and differentiation. This ingredient aids in the regeneration of the skin, therefore aiding in reducing the appearance of existing stretch marks by replacing
the scar tissue with new skin cells. It also acts to prevent stretch marks by promoting collagen and elastin production, which allows your skin to stretch without
rupturing and causing stretch marks. A cream that has shown to be highly effective at preventing stretch marks as well as healing stretch marks that you already
have is Stretch Mark Prevention by Revitol. Whether you are afraid that stretch marks may be in your future of if they are already a part of your life, the Stretch
Mark Prevention cream is the product you will want on your side!
