Q and A: Teen stretch marks


My 14-year-old son grew almost 4 inches in the last year. I noticed that he has a few pink and purple streaks on his legs and back. They look a bit like stretch marks, but I thought that happens only during pregnancy. Are stretch marks common during teen years? I’ve heard that putting cocoa butter on the skin will get rid of stretch marks, but are there other things we should try?
