honestly speaking i'm 20 years old I'm 5'5 & I weight about 110 and I have stretchmark all over my boobs & *** , stretchmark appear because you are growing so fast that your skin can't keep up with the changes in your body, and has to stretch to accommodate the increase in size. if you were to lose weight so you become more secure about yourself you should start using coconut oil or other stretchmark cream (you can find it in any drugstore or supermarket) and rub it against your skin everyday as often as you can and that would def make it better ; If you were to start losing weight without using any cream or doing it slowly your stretch marks might get worse, it would all depends on your skin.

While I don't have the answers of how to get rid of them and lose weight, etc.. I would like to make a comment anyway... You should in NO way be embarrassed by it. There is nothing wrong with it. I understand that the "norm" is for a man to be a certain size, have no gut and a hard chest and all that baloney.. BUT what is important to remember.. is that it's not the outside that counts.. it's the inside.. And if people think differently of you because of the outside.. let me tell you.. They're not good enough for you :) People in this wold put FAR too much emphasis on the physical looks of people.. Now, of course, there has to be attraction between people when they fall in love, etc.. and sometimes that will involve the outside.. but even then, when someone loves the inside.. they will love the outside.. My point is .. You are you.. You need not conform to other peoples standards of what you should or shouldn't look like. You should do what makes you happy.. Besides, it was a medical condition that caused this.. There's no excuse for anyone to make any remarks about it! Of course, you want to be healthy and if it's affecting your health, you will want to do something about it.. But if you feel good on the inside about yourself.. Then don't worry what others think! :)

You shouldn't be embarrased. A LOT of people have stretchmarks... but there's really no way to get rid of 'em. Your best bet is to use cocoa butter to smooth and tighten the appearance.
