My daughter will be 8 in a month. She just came out of her room telling me she was itchy down there. I checked to see if she had a rash or something and she is starting to grow hair already! It's not alot but still! Isn't this early?! I'm SO not ready for this yet. She has needed deodorant since Kindergarten too. Sigh. My baby is growing up :(

She might have a yeast infection. EITHER WAY i would take her to the doctor, maybe they can give you insight as far as how to approach this puberty issue.

It happens!  I had my period by 8!  I was a size 34 b/c by 8th grade.

ask her dr if she has a hormone level issue? That sounds young to me as well as the needing deodorant.

I started getting hair there at 9 or 10. I don't get my period until almost 14.

It happens. I'd go talk with a doc just incase though. It might help put your mind at ease.
I started getting boobs at 10, and had my period by 11. I can't remember when the body hair came in. It was like I went to bed one night bald and woke up the next morning with a damn bush. Lol.

I'm assuming it's not THAT kind of itch.
