My 9yr old has started to get Body Odor and she is asking if she can use deodorant and I don't know if its safe or may block it or make it worse somehow....?

My daughters started using deodorant at 8/9 years old. I started them using Tom's brand... and not anti-perspirant... just regular deodorant at that age.

I recently had the same this going on but with my 7 year old ... After she sweaty her underarms smell specially after her softball games... I started having her use dove deorderant... I'm still not sure if I did the wrong this but didn't want her smelling bad. Online some drs say 8 years and over its normal but 7 and younger could be a metabolism problem.. Hope this helps 😕
