I was wondering if stretch marks from childbirth could cause itching years later? I had my child over 7 years ago and had very bad stretch marks which have stayed with me ever since. And it seems that every evening (6pm on) they itch very badly. I have tried changing laundry soap, daily soap and types of clothing and showering twice a day. It does not happen anywhere else on my body except on my stretch marks. Doctors have given me prescription creams but nothing works and I have tried every body and cleaning soap possible. If you have any suggestions I would be grateful.
I cannot understand why the itch should be just on the stretch marks, although keloid (raised) scars sometimes itch years later, and stretch marks are a form of scar as well.

Thinking it was just one more spider bite, I ignored it until the redness began spreading with increased, very intensive itching. Now, three weeks later, there seems to be a cycle i.e. intense itching and inflammation, followed by dryness to the area (now approximately 5 inches long and 2 inches wide). Just when I think it's going away. Viola!
Is this a fungus, perhaps? Would appreciate your reply ASAP with appropriate medication. Thank you.
