13 year old child with stretch marks on hips and inner thighs. How to prevent this?

My 13 year old daughter has developed stretch marks on her hips and inner thighs. She is five foot six and weighs 130 pounds. I believe that would be a normal weight for someone this height. What can be done to prevent more stretch marks from occuring. It is really embarressing for her especially with summer coming and now she is self concious about wearing a swimsuit.

Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.
These changes are normal in the adolescence period when the body growth spurt takes place suddenly.
Apply a very good quality moisturizer on those areas thrice daily .Avoid tedious exercise and stretching of those areas.Maintain very good hydration status by taking lots of fluids and fruits.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
