Strange diagonal creases on forearm

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with celiac disease 4 months ago.  I noticed these strange lines on my arm, I saw a dermatologist who said it could be lichens sclerosis.  I was wondering if anybody has these lines as and if you know what they are?  The skin is almost like crepe paper and a bit shiny.

I think it's related to a deficiency of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's).  Celiacs often have trouble absorbing essential nutrients, especially fat based nutrients like EFA's, vitamins A, D, E and K.  

You might try adding healthy fats to your diet like cod liver oil, flaxseed oil, olive oil, or hemp oil (not CBD oil although that has benefits, too).  

Hope this helps.

Hey, I have the same thing too! Did you find out what it is? I just had a baby who is 6 month and wondered if it’s from carrying her.

Hi there, 

I recently noticed the exact same thing. I have shiny slightly smooth or dry ish skin on my underarm of my forearm. There are horizontal wrinkles going across it. I had a baby just over a year ago. Has anyone got a diagnosis for this? What is it?

Stretch marks?   Your arms can plump up when you are pregnant and nursing.  Stretch marks just do not just appear on your belly.  They can occur after weight loss.

Hi,

I’m glad so many people responded. I have diagonal lines on my arm too. And I recently had a baby. I noticed them when he was about 6-7 months old. I haven’t found out what has caused it yet?

I have a small area of my right forearm with the same diagonal stripes.  I have no idea what has caused them but have been avoiding most oil for a while. I don't react badly to gluten  products and have an underactive thyroid.  If anyone can explain what causes these red lines it might save me a doctor's appointment.

Hi, did you get  a finalised diagnosis for this? I have it and it comes and goes. It's so odd and it'd be nice to get some answers.

Oh interesting, I have an intolerance to gluten and an subclinical interactive thyroid. I wonder if it's related? My left arm is affected and it started off small and then got bigger

I have grateful to find people with similar stories. I also noticed my lines 1 year after birth and have no idea what causes them. I don't believe I have an insensitivity to gluten although I do have eczema. I'm posting because I hope to receive a reply when someone figures out what the cause is.
