Too Early for Stinky Kid Armpits?

I received this inquiry the other day and thought maybe some of you with older children could help out.  The email said that this mom's youngest child came home from a play date last week smelling stinky in the armpits.  It has been pretty hot out, she says, and that it would seem normal for her oldest child who is 13 years old, but not her youngest.  Her youngest hasn't even hit puberty and won't for a few more years.

She wants to know is it normal for a child under 8 years old to wear deodorant?

  1. I think she should speak to her pediatrician first and ask if the child needs to be evaluated by an endocrinologist.
