A 35-year-old female asked:
7 year old girl seems to be producing to much hormones.
pubic hair growth started at 6 years old
she is much taller than other kids her age
facial hair growth
tenderness in breast area?

Have her evaluated: Some hair growth may be unrelated to puberty but nipple growth at 7 would be and rapid growth in height suggests she has entered that stage too soon. I would have her doc check her bone age & hormones. A referral to a pediatric hormone doc would be wise.
