General & Family Physician 's  Response

Welcome to HCM.
Consult a physician and get detailed investigation of blood and stool done to rule out any pathology. If every thing is normal and the child appears healthy, then you need not worry about it.
Bathe the child twice a day. Probably the sweat of the child must be causing that smell.
Wishing your child all the best.
