My stretch marks are itchy?

i recently developed stretch marks on my lower stomach due to weight gain (they are ugly luckily underwear covers most of them)

Anyways I went to the dermatologist last week for them and he prescribed tretinoin 0.01% gel for me to put on my lower stomach at bedtime. Anyways, my lower stomach where the stretch marks are feel itchy now but when my husband checks the progress on my stretch marks he notices that they are fading (not completely gone but the pinkish color before it goes back to skin tone color).

Is this itching normal? Im not scratching them but like i mentioned my husband thinks the marks are fading so thats a plus...

    Itching happens when skin is healing. This should be perfectly normal.
