I'm a 15 year old boy and I've noticed I've got stretch marks on my upper arm (near armpits) and on my back - and theres one problem.. I go on holiday with ALL my family in October and I'll be so so embaressed to take my shirt off cause I will feel as if people are looking at me. I think I got stretch marks on back due to rapid growth (I am 6ft2) but its so embaressing and I dunno what to do! Any help?

Make a joke out of it if anyone mentions it. Be all like, 'yeah, hahaha' and ignore the teasing, if you get any. I think you'll be fine, doesn't sound rlly shameful to me, specially if it's cuz of growth. Not like there's B.O. coming out of ur armpits or you've got hickies everywhere. GL

Don't worry. I'm sure you probably won't be the only person with stretch marks. Anyways who cares if you do? No one is gonna complain or mention it most likely

There is not a person on this earth that does not have stretch marks somewhere on their body. Don't worry, nobody's gonna think anything of it.

Stretch marks also fade away over time, it's not really something to be embarassed about since everyone has them.

Yeah they are due to rapid growth....I got them in my love handle, butt and upper thigh area..where most of my weight settled whn I started to put on after whole life being stick skinny...Initially they were pink now after abt 1 year they are white..And no new ones came about even tho I keep of putting on little by little..(i've gone from 48kg to 66 kg from 15y/o to 17)

Perfectly normal. Lots of guys get them, and I have some at my hip. I don't think you'll have a problem. Plus they'll fade after awhile.
