I have really bad stretch marks too.. But not from giving birth... Just because I gained an insane amount of weight in a short amount of time... So there everywhere. I found this stretch mark lotion at the drug store I work at and got some.. Its only been about 3 days since I started using it.. I have to say that the ones on my arms look (a miniscule) lighter. However the ones on my stomach and sides are still purple... Im hoping they'll lighten too... But so far nothing. I think any drug store really would have some lotion type stuff for stretch marks... Just go take a look.

Stretch marks are scars on your skin. They are permanent. You will never get rid of them. My grandmother showed me her stretchmarks from her twin pregnancy 40+ years after she'd been pregnant. You can use lotion. You can try to cover them up. But in the end, the best thing to do is learn to live with them.

The purple color will fade eventually and they will be a silvery skin color.

I have stretch marks from my waist to mid calf and have for 20 years.

Surgery will leave scars also and is very expensive. Which is why most people just live with them. If you look around you'll notice a lot of people have stretch marks. Fact of life. Even my husband has them from growing too fast when he was a teenager. They are completely normal.
