    smelly armpits

    My daughter is only 8 but her armpits stink of BO! if she has a bath in the evening they smell bad by half way through the next day

    It seemed too early for puberty expecially as she is small and skinny

    I took her to the gp who made me feel like an idiot for bringing her.......

    was it really so dumb?!!

    No?! Not dumb at all!

    I would be cross at the GP tbh!

    Can you get her a gentle roll on deodorant?

    Some kids do just start earlier than others with puberty ... girls as young as 9 can start their periods.

    Have you had "the talk" with her yet?

    My DD was the same and I started getting her to use deoderant, she uses 'Keep it Kind, Missy girls teen deoderant,' I also make sure she washes under her arms every day and has a clean shirt every day. DD has had underarm and pubic hair since she was 9 and has buds developing since then as well I think she started puberty at around 8ish and I was told not to worry, she is very tall for her age but very slim

    My eldest has just turned 9 and has been using deodorant for about 6 months. I created a post in here back then as it took me by surprise too!

    She also had stinking sour breath which the dr said would not be connected to the armpit smell,

    however, since switching to lactofree milk and taking probiotics, both her breath and armpits are a lot less pungent.
