Stinky arm, sign of puberty

Hi! I have a 7 year old daughter, and lately I have noticed that she is really stinky under the arms. Usually I have her scrub under her arms when she takes a shower, but she forgot this morning and I can smell it all over her school uniform today. Is this normal? I always thought this should be happening closer to puberty . Please help her

Yes, it's normal. For reasons as yet to be explained, these things are happening at younger ages as compared to when we were kids. It doesn't necessarily mean that other signs of puberty will soon be upon us. But it could and by today's standards, this is not abnormal.
