Q.

2 & half year old smelling a bit sweaty

My 2 and a half year old daughter weighs 22.4kg. She has since birth been big. She sweats when she plays or is doing other active things. My concern is that she sometimes smells a bit sweaty in her armpits. It's not a sharp smell and I can only smell it when I hug her or if I make a point of smelling her armpits. Is there something I can use. A spray that's mild enough. Thanx doc.

There are no safe anti-perspirants for use in this age group. The main thing is not to make her feel different and aware of this 'problem' It is probaly a passing phase.
