Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that two possibilities arise . First will be presence of urine infection which needs to be ruled out . You should see a physician get a urine r/ m and c/s done to look for any infection. Other is ruling out any kind of metabolic disorder . like cystinuria etc also leads to smell in urine .so first the cause needs to be established before suggesting you any treatment . Take care.
