  • Could be caused by the antibiotic prescribed. chances are good that the UTI has cleared up, but the antibiotic caused a secondary infection....a yeast infection. Your best bet is a follow -up with her pediatrician. The sooner the better so things can get back to normal. Especially so if she still has symptoms.

  • UTI's do not have an odor. Yeast infections do. Check her undies for discharge, and call her doctor.

  • When did she stop the medication? Sounds like it could be an odor from the meds.
