As long pregnancy is there stretch marks will remain whether you use anything or not.
So nothing to worry,after delivery gradually it will disappear.
You continue to apply coconut oil ingredient of vitamin E .This is fine.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You are only 28 weeks pregnant right now . These marks are on an increase right now and will become more prominent as the full term will approach.You can continue the products you are using but there is very little all these things can do to remove the marks.

welcome to healthcaremagic
stretchmarks and pigmentations are physiological with pregnancy
it varies from person to person
usually it fades out after pregnancy is over
regular use of the things you mentioned may be continued

hello swapnaneel,
There is no specific medical treatment for stretch marks.Many creams, gels and lotions claim to be able to remove stretch marks.but it is very doubtful that oils or creams can help prevent stretch lasers claim treatment but fact is Laser therapy cannot remove stretch marks altogether, but it may help them to fade and appear less obvious.The earlier the stretch mark is treated, generally the better the result.vit e may helpful to some extent. but many marks get faded as time goes. continue the same treatment. if u want u can consult a dermatologist .take care
