Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
Children with dark pubic hair age 6 years old
What causes a 6 year old child to start growing pubic hair? Could it be that she may start her period early, or is this a disease?
That is an unusual finding. I would suggest having her evaluated by the pediatrician or possibly a pediatric endocrinologist.
