Foul Smelling Urine. How Can This Be Avoided?

Hi doctor,
I am 24, and I have one serious problem. Some times after passing urine I get some bad smell from my underpants. I frequently do masurbation (once or twice in a week). So could you please tell me if this could be the reason why I get bad smell from my underpants after passing urine? Please help me how can this be avoided.
Thanks in advance!!!!
Have a good day!!!!

Welcome to HCM. You need to rule out fungal infection in the groin and pubic areas,also using talc and keeping the area dry will help.Ruling out any perianal fistula and any cyst/wound at the base of the sacrum may help.Using cotton undergarments,bathing regularly will help.masturbation in no way affects the hygiene in the area.Getting a urine examination done to rule out UTI may help.

Hi dear

Welcome to the board of Health care magic.

Dear probably you have developed some urinary tract infection.

I would like to advice to go for urine tests like routine microscopic examination and culture sensitivity.

You can be easily treated by getting some antibiotic drug according to the urine culture sensitivity report.

Go for plenty of liquids.

Masturbation can not be the reason for the bad smell.

Hygiene maintenance is very important for you.

Hope your query is answered with your satisfaction and useful to you.

Thanks

Hi, many thanks for the query!
You should drink plenty of water so that at least 3 litres of urine is
voided in 24 hrs.
Do- Urine (Routine & Microscopy).
If there is any abnormal finding then consult your Urologist.
Keep your penis clean, wash it with water while bathing, also your underpants should be clean & washed and should be changed daily.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Bad smell after urination could be due to leak of urine wetting your inner wears.
Try to void completely and wash after urination.
Get your urine routine and culture done, as foul smelling urine could be due to urinary infection.
Get blood sugar test done, could be due to presence of ketones in urine

Consult your doctor for examination and management.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.

Regards
Dr. Vidya
