I'm not sure. My son is 9 and we don't need deodorant yet.

Body odor at 7 is not the norm. I'd make an appointment.

he has always had very sensitive skin so I could give some reasoning to the pimples but I thought he was too young for the deorderant. I think I will call his doctor and see if he is concerned and wants me to bring him in.

When I taught first grade I had a student that I thought had pimples. I sent him to the nurse for something and he ended up being sent home with impetigo. You just never know,,, better to get it looked at.

Does he bathe on a regular basis?
