Hi There,

Purplish stretch marks, also known as striae is a common symptom of Cushing's. I don't know of any topical treatment to heal them. However, we do have a closed Facebook support group that you can request to join. There are many members in that group that might have some advice for remedies. It's called Pituitary Network Support Group. Once you have been added to the group, only members of the group can see your posts. None of your other facebook friends can see your posts.

Is cushing's really causes stretch marks? was created by RichardB6

Hello all.

I hope you all doing well.

My friend is suffering from Cushing's syndrome for over 6 months.
recently, he found many stretch marks on his body.

So, as my title says is Cushing's syndrome is the reason behind his stretch marks?

Also, what are you guys using to heal stretch marks?

From my web searches, I found TriLASTIN Coupon is good for stretch marks.
is anyone here is using it?

I would love to hear any recommendations/suggestions from you guys.

thanks in advance.
