Red Marks

Hi. Im not sure If I have chosen the right topic. Recently I have been losing some weight and I have noticed some red marks have appeared on my skin. They have appeared on my hips and Im worried that this could be in relation to me losing weight. Do you know why these red marks have appeared? Thanks for replying.

When you are over weight your skin stretches and gorws extra...

so when you lose wieght you dont lose skin.. and it all compacts.. the stretched skin shows up red because it is thinner.

This wil go away over a long period of time.. unless you were highly overweight.. they may be permanent and require surgery to get rid of.
