I have stretch marks and I am 14 which isn't

Patient : I have stretch marks and I am 14 which isn't abnormal however they pop out when my body gets hot or I'm exercising mostly but sometimes they do it randomly it tends to be irregular and my mom wants to go see a dermatologist but we don't have the money which is why I'm here. Help please do I need to see a dermatologist? Am I okay?
Doctor :   Hello thanks for your query on ATD. The stretch mark develop when your weight & or height increases .It is very commo n during puberty. If you are overweight try to reduce by exercises. Most of the marks fade away with passage of time. Also take plenty of citrus fruits. Hope this helps you.
