The other day, I smelled somethin just downright "funky". I checked my underarms it wasn't me, I checked the kids in my day care until I came to this one child who is only 4 years old. She literally smelled worse than a grown man coming home from a constuction site. I took her to the bathroom and freshened her up with a bar of soap, and let her change her shirt. When her mom came, I just told her she got a little too hot today. I didn't want to say she needed deordorant. Can a 4 year old get under arm funk that early?Answer Question

My 2nd son started smelling around 5-6 yrs. It was horrible!! Even with a nightly bath and washing his arm pits a few times a day! I mentioned it to his Dr. who informed me that children are starting earlier and earlier and to use deodorant if it got to bad. I bought organic deodorant (not wanting to put all those chemicals on my sons skin so close to glands and everything else). It doesn't work. At now 8 yrs old he wares the same as his dad. I just can't find anything to cover the stink!! Looking back on it now, I really wish I'd have gotten a second opinion. That really could possibly explain other issues too.
