I feel your pain Brenda!! My dd just turned 8 last month and B.O. has been an issue with her for several months now. The washing regular helps to get rid of it at the moment but as soon as she sweats, it is back. Deoderant helps some-maybe try a different brand or try one that is an anti-perspirant and not just deoderant? I have big concerns over early puberty as well and I am reasonably sure that is what is going on with her-I was pretty early, but extraordinarily so. Body hair by 10 and started my period right around the same time. I'm not ready for it either, but have accepted that is a likely explanation.
I have also heard that different foods create more body odor also, but have not tried looking for any correlation with dd.
llme, I don't really know any more about it, but personally I would not medicate-I would let it go. That's just what I would do though, everyone is different. IMO, medicating for a lengthy period of time can't be much better than the possible adverse effects of early menstruation. I would be interested in what a dr. has to say about it though, if you talk to someone! My biggest concern is not biological, but pyshcological-it just sucks that an 8 year old would have to worry about changing pads and cramps and stuff,kwim?
Just curious, and no-one has to answer this if they don't want to, but is weight a factor for any of the girls mentioned? It is for my daughter, and I know that can be a big contributing factor to early puberty (reaching the critical mass earlier). Just wondering...
