    hi welcome

    sounds like they are strech marks to me. horrible ugly things ive got them too on my thighs even though im only 8 1/2 stone. its something to do with the elasticness of your skin. the best thing for them ,i think, is the sun once you've got a tan they fade away abit.

    hope thats helped!!! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I've got a few of them on my thighs too. I think they are like little stretch marks (even though I'm slim and quite healthy.) I don't think they're anything to worry about. Not sure how to make them go away though <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    You can get them either through rapid weight gain and loss. I think they fade away through time, but you can use products like Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula for Stretch Marks to help. My friend had a baby and used that to get rid of stretch marks. It smells yummy too, like chocolate!

    Hi metal

    OK, they could be anything - you have to go and see your GP for a proper diagnosis. For starters, stretch marks usually start off red, not blue.

    Even the best doctor in the world could not safely give you a diagnosis over the internet. You need to be examined properly. Sorry!
