blemishes or infected stretch marks?

Did anyone out there ever get blemishes or infections in your stretch marks?

I know this is a weird question, but I have some VERY deep and awful stretchmarks on my tummy that are almost translucent.  It's like they are barely even skin.  I hope that doesn't sound too graphic or weird.

Every once in awhile I get a blemish or infected spot almost like a pimple in a stretchmark and it hurts, I've had to drain them myself because they don't heal like a blemish on the face would.

I am not diabetic or anything so I'm not sure why it happens or if anyone else has ever gone through this.

Wearing pants right now is a screaming pain.  I'm walking around like I have appendicitis for crying out loud!

Thanks,
D

I get those too. For me, it's like soap gets stuck in the pores around the hair follicle, I think because the skin is so thin. I just pop them, making sure to get the hair out, and it goes away really quick.

Good luck!!

I used to get them a lot. 2 yrs post op not so much anymore. They are ingrown hairs. The heat would make them worse. I would get them literally everywhere.
