1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

The presence of body odor, underarm & some genital hair are controlled by the adrenal glands & not directly part of the pubertal hormones.
Occurrence of these at 6y is not uncommon.Breast bud development is the first obvious sign of female puberty with an average girl showing breast bud growth by 11 and 13 considered late.
