My dd is 8 and smells bad... I make her shower everyday! but something she's doing or not doing is making her smell. It's comparable to like, if you've ever had hamsters, and when the bedding does not get cleaned out and is soaked with urine, thats what she smells like. Between her legs, when she is sitting with her legs apart its so strong. Its not this way everyday, I know she does not wipe all the time and I try to talk to her about that saying it could cause an infection, or her to smell but still why is the smell so strong? I have never had this issue ever, my son has never had issues with hygeine either. She hates showering, hates baths, doesn't wipe 100% of the time, can't smell herself for some reason. I've asked her can't you smell that? She says NO! I love my daughter dearly, I'm worried for her, anyone else have this problem or any advice?Answer Question

She might not be cleaning everything. You might need to go and show her where to clean. Even though you think she knows how to shower. She might not. If it does not help. You might need to bring her to the doctor and see if it is a medical issue.
