Looks you have developed stretch marks on skin of your abdomen.
Stretch marks or striae, as they are called in dermatology, are a form of scarring on the skin with a silvery white hue.
They first appear as reddish or purple lines, but tend to gradually fade to a lighter color.
Stretch marks are the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (e.g. pregnancy).
Stretch marks are generally associated with pregnancy, obesity, and can develop during rapid muscle growth from regular exercise.
They pose no health risk, only significance is cosmetic.
Various treatments available are laser treatments, dermabrasion etc.
