My daughter just turned 7 in January. Starting Friday, she has had this really bad fishy smell to her. It literally stank up the whole house. What is going on? I am going to make an appointment for her for tomorrow. I thought maybe she wasn't wiping herself good, and I made sure that on Saturday I washed her up extremely good down there. By the end of the day, the smell was there again. What could be causing this? I tried to Google it a bit and read somewhere that it was due to the early onset of puberty. I'm deathly afraid that my 7 year old will have a period. I can't have that for her. First of all, she's a little girl who -- well, if she could be dirty all day, she would. I'm very scared about this. I want her to enjoy her childhood without having to worry about such things yet. UghAnswer Question

This article has some good information for you. I would take her to the doctor because it is more than likely a bacterial infection.
