Q.

4 YEAR OLD UNDER ARMS


My four year old has smelly armpits. She does play in the sun and it is hot but she does bath properly. What causes this and how can I help her?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This is obviously unusual in a little girl of 4 years. It may be the first sign of a condition called 'precocious puberty' or early onset of puberty. For this reason it is best to ask your paediatrician to see your daughter and to advise you further.
