there could be four things here. first and most common are stretch marks. which are pink or white sometimes brown irregular lines. they need anti stretch mark creams . you will need to do liver function test . if the value is normal then you need to see a skin specialist to look for a viral rash or PUPPA. if liver functions are out of range pl see a gastroenterologist it can be cholestasis

What i observe is that the rashes are white in color(round in shape,small & closely located) and randomly increases and decreases.At present it is present on back and around the shoulder and itches very much.Do stretch marks itches?can one have stretch marks on the back also?
