Children can begin to have puberty changes between ages 9 and 14 and begin to have the need for deodorant. If your son is experiencing body odor there are many deodorants and anti-perspirants they can use such as Teen Spirit by Mennen sold at your local drug stores and/or Wal-mart. I suggest you look in the deodorant isle for products such as this and if he is sweating as well use not a deodorant but an anti-perspirant which can help with this.
