Does a foul smell in urine indicate urine infection in my child ? Could this smell be due to kidney reflux ?

Hello, I have a question regarding my three year old daughter. At approximately 9 months old, she was diagnosed with bilateral kidney reflux, grade 3 and 4. At age one, she successfully went through a STING procedure to correct the reflux. We have had no problems since. However, I have noticed over the past couple of weeks, there is a strong smell from her urine. There are no temperatures or other sign of infection. Would a strong smell indicate an infection? Thank you for your help.

welcome to healthcaremagic,
get your child's urine routine examination done and that shall answer all the questions. If urine examination shows pus cells then she needs further evaluation.
