Q.

under arm odour

Hi Doc,

My daughter is 6yrs 8mnths old. I have noticed that she has a slight under arm odour.

Is this normal at her age?
Can I use under arm rollers/ deodrants on her taking into consideration her age / sensitivity of her skin?

Thank You.

The question is why your 6 year old daughter has underarm odour?This is usually a sign of early puberty. As she is only 6 years old,this is early for her to be showing signs of puberty. If any other signs appear soon she must be seen by a paediatrician.
