Q.

Arm pits

My little girl of 9 years old perspires under her arms and it is a distinct sweat smell.
She is a very clean child and baths every day,
Is this normal for a nine year old. She is not showing any signs of development ie (boobies or anything).
But t6he odour worries me. ( I have bought her roll on and deoderant, so we do have it under control) but it still weorries me.

The fact that you can notice that her sweat has an odour is usuallyan early sign of the onset of puberty.
