    So I've had stretch marks since I was born. I'm not trying to blame it on genetics, but it IS a factor. I also have a mildly aggressive case of eczema, and its only me in the family.
    I've mostly had them on my "under-belly" all my life and I've gotten used to hiding them by wearing presentable clothing.
    However, I have a new problem - stretch marks are appearing under my armpit and near my breasts. This is very recent; it happened after I turned 18 last year (also around the time women "stop puberty").
    My breasts aren't massive, but they are pretty heavy and troublesome. I've never had operations on them. I doubt my breasts have grown that much (maybe because I see them everyday), but it might be relative to other people.

    Any advice or information regarding this and how to "solve" it would be appreciated. I feel so uncomfortable wearing tanktops now and I'm afraid of people asking about it. A general practitioner told me my arteries "exploded" in my shoulders but I don't think its that extreme.

    Bio oil is good for stretch marks, you could give that a go! It takes a while before you notice any effect though so you have to keep using it even when you feel it's doing noting!
