Not a good idea!: Being skinny is not a disease. If you are otherwise healthy, leave it alone. Taking steroids will cause you more grief that it would be worth. You will gain weight as you age and then you will fondly recall these days when you could eat and not become fat. You may wish to do weight training to see if that helps your muscles, it may not.

Safe Weight Gain?: Steroids should not be your choice to gain weight. In fact your current Ht to Wt is actually healthy. Any addition weight can be gained through weight lifting combined with increased and correct protein/fat/carb intake. Consider a gym trainer to help guide you in a plan for both.
