This is a sign of early puberty but as your daughter is already 9 years old there is no need for any concern. You are using the correct deoderant for her.

Also try getting her to shower morning and evening in summer rather than just once a day.

As one nears puberty, armpits do start to smell. I also use Mitchum, its a fantastic deoderant, the only one I''ve found that only needs to be applied once a day and does not stain clothes.
