My 12 year old daughter's armpits smell. Isn't she too young for this?

Odor from armpits has nothing to do with age. The odor you notice is a sign for the breakdown of the different components of transpiration, so if your daughter was very active, doing sports or in a highly heated room the odor might be an indicator that she transpired in her armpits. You can get her an dermatological tested child friendly deodorant if she would like to, just make sure that her possibly sensitive skin is fine with it to avoid rashes.

If she is athletic then no, an athletic person will sweat more often to cool their body because they will work harder, so it is natural IF she is athletic.
If not then I do not know.
