This is very unusual in such a young child and there must be a reason for this problem. It would be best to see a paediatric dermatologist for an opinion.

Doc - I have noticed recently that my daughter aged 5 also has started with this smelly armpit thing - only on exertion and hot weather. I only remember having to wear deo when I started to mature - about 11 or 12. Why would this happen to youngsters like CC's and myne?
