  • If she has just started developing or if she grew a substanstial amount recently, they are perfectly normal. If you are concerned, talk to her doctor. Otherwise, I would say just get a scar reducing cream like Mederma or Scarguard.

  • That's totally normal. Your daughter just grew too fast. It happened to me. When I was about 12 I had tons of stretch marks on my outer thighs and hips and it scared me cuz I had no clue what they were. I just grew too fast. I also got them on my breasts as well. Don't worry, eventually they will lighten and look like white lines. I'm lucky because I'm so white you can't even see mine.

  • stretch marks, its normal, i have them on my breasts as well, i got them at the age of 14 i believe!!!! they really only show up after your skin stretches out and is irritated!!! :( when u lose weight where ur stretch marks are they become regular skin color but it actually may seem a lil lighter than ur skin color!!! but good luck!!

  • Normal! She just increased size too quickly but that happens and it is nothing to be alarmed about.
