Is foul smelling cloudy urine a symptom of urinary tract infection?

I have a 14 year old daughter who said her urine smells foul and is cloudy. She said it is not painful when she urinates although it stung a little bit a couple days ago. Is this most likely a UTI? At what point do I need to bring her to the clinic?

Hi,

By what you say this seems like a UTI.'She will require a urine culture and most probably an antibiotic (Cefixime). She needs medical attention as soon as possible, please. But this is not an emergency.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
