Is it a good idea to start my six year old daughter to using deodorant? She's having issues with sweating under her arm and its making her underarms musky. My mom told me not to start her with that yet but, I don't want her walking around school or anywhere with body order and have the kids teasing and calling her stink. So, help me make the right decision, PLEASE!! Thanks....

Have you discussed this with her doctor? I'd rule out a fungal infection or other issue first.

My daughter had the same problem. I started her on Tom's deodorant because it is more gentle than most brands. She has been using it ever since. No more stinking pits. She will be 9 next month. I was really shocked that a 6 year old child would have body odor so I checked with my pediatrician. The pediatrician told me it was not abnormal and recommended the Tom's. I hope it helps.
