Conditions with symptom: 'early puberty'
My 6 year old daughter has smelly armpits too! She also has EXTREMELY sweaty feet too and has done since she was about 3. Our GP has prescribed a roll on deodorant for her feet that is safe for use on other body parts such as underarms. I encourage her to wash thoroughly under her arms twice a day. The thing is she is a naturally very warm person. I would personally not be too concerned. If she starts developing signs such as pubic hair, breast development then it could be a sign of ver early puberty. precocious (early) puberty can can start at around 8 in girls but as early as 6 in some cases. If you are very worried I would see your GP but if it is just the Smelly sweat, I would not be overly concerned. If it is embarrassing for her I would go to boots and enquire about a mild and gentle roll on deodorant suitable for a child's skin, there are none marketed for children but finding one for very sensitive skin may be an idea. I encourage my daughter to use a small amount during the hot weather months. At the end of the day, if you are at all worried se you GP. Your little girl is not alone and it is comforting to know my littl1 is not alone too.
my 9 year old daughter has been under a doctor at hospital for a year with a bad discharge which can smell, they have done all kinds of tests but cannot give a diagnosis, not even to definately say it could be early puberty. what else could it be shes very upset
that is really worrying, to me i've got rashes all over my face can't get them off me. I don't like sickness, nobody does, sometimes it can be hard to cope with it, the only ways to keep off fatness is either working the body or surgery, i am replying because i just want to say this to all of you, LIFE WITH SICKNESS CAN BE HARD!
Don't worry about it. I am 13 and I don't either. My mum started late so it might be worth asking your mum what time she started as puberty runs in genetics. Boys won't know you have started puberty or not unless you obviously tell them. Just act normal around them and don't panic. Every girl or women will go through puberty at one stage.
I have a tight foreskin but when I manage to get it down it has two cuts on by the front and one by the back they bleed sometimes I am 16 and half way through puberty but I can't clean it either and I don't want to be circumstised I use to be able to pull it all the way down before puberty this problem only came around half way through 2013 I don't want to go the doctors because I'm only half way through puberty
Hi. My 7 year old daughter is showing signs of early puberty. She has begun to develop breasts and has pubic hair. I contacted my GP and he took blood tests which have returned normal. He did a full blood count and a hormone test I now have to wait 9 to 12 weeks to see a pediatrician. I really worried my daughter may take her period. She has also been having constipation since these symptoms have appeared. Im very worried
Does anyone know if nail butti is an early sign of autism? My toddler has just turned 18months this week and I have notice that she has been nibbling and biting at her nails for the last few weeks, she has never had any oral fixations ie dummy or sucker her fingers or thumb or comfort so this seems a very new thing that we don't see as something he has picked up from ourselves as we don't bite our nails. I am asking generally about nail bitting at such a young age as it seems so early but also coupled with very frequent tip toe walking and seemingly above average intellegance I am curious if there might be more I need to think about? Has anyone encountered these things? Thanks mum of 1 rainbow and 3 angels
I'm seventeen and I bite the skin around my nails and have for a very long time. With me, it's an anxiety thing that grows worse when I'm stressed. As this is a toddler, I would say that it could be to do with anxiety, or it could just be something that she is doing subconsciously as my cousins do the same. Also, just because she hasn't observed the behaviour in you or your partner, doesn't mean that she hasn't seen another child or different adult biting their nails and learned from them. For the tip-toe walking that could just be novelty. There's a lot of debate about whether intelligence is linked with autism, but if you're really worried then I would visit a doctor, although most symptoms only become noticeable at around three years of age. It's difficult for someone to diagnose your child without knowing her. These could just be quirks/phases/novelties.
Boys have different size penises like men,your son is young and trust me he will grow once he hits puberty, i was circumcised at 5 and my penis grew, my son had to be circumcised as well at 12 , he was small before the circumcision, puberty came along and bingo he grew.
Some young boys penis doesn't grow that much until they hit puberty, I an pretty sure that it has grown but it might not be as noticeable as it will be in the next couple of years to come. If your son has hit puberty and you are still concerned then I advice that you go to see a GP. You also have to keep in mind that boys and men have all got different shapes and sizes penis' so try not to worry him because it is completely natural.
My daughter has started puberty at just 6. She is now 6 and her breasts are already quite large prob a b cup. It has been confirmed by a paed that she is in puberty and is not going to start her period any time soon so has been left to get on with it. I just dont know how to help her. She is a wee girl who just loves to play BUT then has teenage moments. She also cries a lot. I am also worried about bullying ss she is the only one with breasts practicaly in the whole school(small 1). She used to always be so happy and well behaved this was not meant to happen for yesrs.
First of all, don't worry! Even though it is extremely unusual for her to be strating puberty so young! If you stress and make a big fuss, she could have a 'teenage moment' as you call them (!!) and cry. Worse still she might understand and see that she is different and you fretting will never help her realise she isn't odd. Good luck.
my daughter is 10 she is getting breasts and being very stressed i dont no wat 2 do about it.She is now startin 2 worry about her weight and cries wen sum1 brings it up wat shold i do?
