Hi there...I can understand your concern. A women's body is known to develop hyperpigmentation and stretch marks during pregnancy. Sometimes it reduces once the pregnancy is over. But most of the times it persists. Depending on what lesions are present on your stomach you will have to be treated accordingly. So kindly consult a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment. For stretch marks, they might start you on creams like tretinoin, silicone gel. For hyperpigmentation, they might give glycolic acids kojic acid creams.
