I've had chronic UC for approximately 14 years now. Of those 14 years I was on varying doses (up to 70mg daily) of Prednisone for 10+ years. The long-term use of Prednisone left striae (stretch marks) on my inner thighs and also 2 skin tears running vertically on the sides of my stomach. The marks on my thighs aren't that noticeable and are mostly superficial. However, the striae (skin tears) on my stomach is much worse and I'd like to find a way to remove them or repair them as much as possible. Thankfully, I've been off of Prednisone for almost a year now, but I want to find a way to fix the damage its done. If anyone reading this has any information that would help me, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance,
Justin - 33yo/m
Colazal - 3 750mg tabs 3x daily
Allopurinol - 1 100mg tab 1x daily
Imuran - 2 50mg tabs 1x daily
