have you asked her doctor?  maybe she should wear a deodorant for now until you figure it out, but I don't think thats normal.. there is another post floating around about a kid being suspended for being smelly.. not to mention the teasing... I would bring her to the doctor... or bathe more than once a day?

 I guess I'd try a natural deodorant and go from there.

Have you talked to her pedi? Could she have hyperhidrosis?

Not normal. She needs to see a doctor.

You really need to take her to the dr. There are chemical imbalances that can cause this. 

I am giving you a link to a group that studies body odor. There are people who have certain chemical imbalances and it can be difficult to deal with and can really cause social issues as the children age.

 Is she overweight?  I'm not saying that to be mean, but when my youngest was an infant he was chunky and his rolls on his neck held in moisture and if I didn't clean his neck every once in a while it would get stinky.  lol.  Could it be that?  or is it like underarm odor?  If it's underarm odor I do know of a condition that requires her to have to take medication from slowing down puberty.

 Maybe its what she's eating? or it could be medical. First try to change her diet if possible... no garlic, foods high in acid and such ... If that doesn't help I'd ask her ped doctor

I agree look at her diet and speak to her pedi. Also sometimes u could be bathing her too much and with nasty stuff that can screw up her bodys ph. Try rubbing a natural deoderant or tto or even lemon juice under her arms etc. Is she overweight?
