Does iron supplements cause body odor?

Does iron supplements cause body odor? My girl 6 yrs old was diagnosed with low iron in her blood work and she has been taking the flintstones multivit with iron, but i have noticed strong body odor in her underarms and urine. I also tried to eliminate foods producing body odor but not much help? Can the supplement she is taking be causing it? Please help
