    Actually I also have certain marks on my shoulder balls exactly….they are kind of white lines….they are stretch marks which appear due to sudden increase in height or weight gain specially during teenage….this is due to weak collagen at certain spots and the best remedy is to massage with vitamin E oil…compliment it with applying turmeric + milk…it has helped mine but I am lazy and stopped over a period of time so the lines are still there….
