Even when you don't gain a lot of weight the shape of your body changes at that age. I got more stretch marks when I developed a figure than I did with my first pregnancy. You might talk to her doctor or dermatologist since they are fairly significant and hurting her self esteem. A dermatologist should be able to recommend the best type of skin care for her, and you can also buy over-the-counter stretch mark or scar creams like Mederma. I don't think the stretch marks themselves are anything to be worried about, but a young girl's self esteem can be delicate.
