Abstract: 

Striae gravidarum is one of the most common skin manifestations of pregnancy. Considering its known complications and the folk belief on the efficacy of oily humectant substances in its prevention, and for evaluation of the effectiveness of almond oil, this study was performed in especial care unit for pregnancy of Imam Hossein hospital from 1998 to 1999. The clinical trial strategy and sequential sampling of this study was performed on 159 women after 4th months of first pregnancy and fat cases, patients with Cushing's disease and background diseases of skin, steroid consumers, women with multiple pregnancy, cases with polyhydraminus and/or macrosomal kind of pregnancy (a weight greater than 4 Kg) were excluded from the study.
The patients were randomly divided into three groups, that is control group receiving no treatment, and case groups receiving 1 ml of almond oil or glycerine. The classification was mild for the presence of striae in the interval from symphysis pubis to navel that span at most V4 of abdomen, moderate for its existence in at most half the abdominal skin, and severe for its existence higher than navel and covering more than half of the abdominal skin. The X2 test was used for analysis of data.
The groups, that is control (n=53), glycerin consumers (n=53), and almond oil consumers (n=50) were similar regarding pregnancy period and other causative factors. The rate of occurrence of stria gravidarum was 79.2% in control group and the occurrence of its severe form was 24% in this group. The rate of occurrence for the glycerine and almond oil groups were 9.4% and 7.5% respectively (P>0.009).
Therefore, it is recommended to use almond oil to prevent the occurrence of stria gravidarum.
