Stretch marks & bio-oil - help needed please


I am a 24 year old male, and over the past 5 months i have been on medication that has caused me to pile on almost 4 stone in such a short period of time. This has resulted in stretch marks on my inner arms, hips, thighs and inner leg areas. I am so gutted about this, I am 24 and i'm male and i never thought i would be susceptible to this. I have bought some bio-oil and have been using it for a few days - has anyone else used this? Its quite expensive, but i will give anything a go. Does anyone have any other tips of how to treat stretch marks?

any help would be great

I have never used Bio-oil (It is cheaper for me to use emu oil instead of Bio-oil) but I do use emu oil on my stretch marks and they are a lot lighter.
