Okay so I have grown from like 5'7 to 5'11 in the 2 years I've been in high school. Also I have gone from being skinny and lanky to a bit more fuller figured. Could the purple marks I have gotten on my upper inner thighs, under my butt, and on my chest be from growing so much in such a small time or?

Coco butter cream will make them go away. I used it during my pregnacy and have no marks from it plus i told a few friends about using it because they gain sum weight after a few years and it work for them as well. Good luck! Try it. Hope it works for you.

Cocoa butter and almond oil works for me, just get some cocoa butter and a little almond oil and you put it on scarred area every day and they should go away soon:)

Yes absolutely. I'm only 20 now but puberty was really hard on me. I went from 5'4 to 5'7 and a 00 to a seven in a little under two years. The stretch marks will fade, palmers cocoa butter will help and make them less sensitive. But when I was 18, I was in the gym about 14 hours  5/6 days a week and ,my body,I thought was alright before I started working out but it went to what I felt was perfect and the majority of my stretch marks disappeared. And this is four years after I got them. And speaking from the trauma of weight gain I'm going through now I'd like to tell you this. I think because of the drastic change in our body we see ourselves bigger than we are, esp when your are used to being tiny and seeing our bones pop out. But curves are beautiful, just try to stay fit don't try to lose weight or do anything crazy. Just maintain what you have? Trust me, in a few years when you gain 30 pounds you're going to wish you have the body you had. Take care of yourself and love your body it's beautiful and you'll see that more and more once you are truly healthy!
