    I don't know what you should do with someone so young, I just know it was horrible for me
    Talk to her pediatrician maybe? If it's unusual for your family, maybe she needs her endocrine hormone levels checked?
    Bleach smells too, and makes my eyes water!

    I talked to my doctor about it - my daughter is only 5, but I had issues with facial hair early and found it horribly embarrassing, so wanted to be ahead of the game.
    Here's what I was told. At 10, her skin will be so sensitive, bleach, depilatory creams, waxing, electrolysis, etc NOT good options.
    Recommended using a small trimmer - like one used for trimming bikini area, once a week. Clean it with rubbing alcohol to avoid breakouts on her skin.
    Once she is 13 or older, other things, like waxing, can be explored, if she is open to the idea.
    That's what I've got - good luck.
