There's often concern there might be a medical problem, if a young girl starts developing into a woman at too early an age.

IN Q=Pediatricians looked
RUNS=:40
OUT Q=so wide.

((
Pediatricians looked at more than 17-thousand girls and found that though their periods started on average, at age 12, secondary sexual characteristics developed much earlier.
The mean age for normal breast development was "eight-point-eight-seven" years for African American girls, and "nine-point-nine-six" years of age in white girls.
The study also suggests that racial differences can be important.
At age EIGHT, while only 14.7 percent have breasts or body hair development, 48-percent or better of African American girls already have such developments, so parents shouldn't necessarily compare their daughter's development to the girl's down the block-- since the age range is so wide.))

The precise cause is unknown, but Rosacea often begins with a chronic redness of the face, that looks like a blush or sunburn.
