Brief Answer: Urinary tract infection. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Foul smelling urine is usually caused by urinary tract infection. With this condition you should also have burning while urinating, frequent urinating, lower abdominal pain, some blood in urine can be present. Sometimes foul smelling urine appears due to strange smelling products in diet. Diabetes can also give strange urine smell. I suggest you to visit you doctor. Urine analysis should be done. Antibiotic might be necessary. In a meanwhile pleas increase mineral water intake and start cranberries supplementation. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
