ever since i got my bag i have had the itchies in one certain spot and i never saw anything on the wafer, no matter what i did i couldn't get them to go away. Finally today, i realized that the wafer and stuff go right over a strechmark that is pretty bad and raised up, if that makes sense. ANd that is what is causing the itching.  Is there anything at all i could do for that?

have u tried stri-vectin? iv never used it but i heard it helps. I use co co butter for my stretch marks (when i can remember) but i dont itch constantly. The only time they itch is when my skin is just dry

well since it is under the wafer i was afraid to try that, cause i figured it would make it hard for the wafer to stick.

I'd love to hear a solution, cause I have the same exact problem! I always thought it was the strechmarks causing it, I feel better that someone else has experienced this too, and I'm not crazy.

If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

I wonder if Calamine lotion would work. It isn't greasy, so the wafer should still stick.
