Hello,

A urinary tract infection (UTI) can cause your urine to have a foul smell with ammonia-like odor.

Bacteria can affect the bladder and urinary tract, causing an infection that will cause pain when you pee.

I suggest to do a urine test to confirm the diagnosis.

Meanwhile,I suggest to use anti inflammatory medication such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
