Please help! My two year old's urine and breath smell like pickles!

any one know what could cause this? He has had a runny nose the last couple of days but no other symptoms and now all of the sudden his breath and pee and maybe his sweat too, smell like pickles! I am freaking out. But I dont want to take him to the ER tonight with the symptoms of a pickle odor. any one else experienced this?

  • I have never heard such a thing but i would watch and see if it conts. and if it does then bring him to his doctors office he may have a UTI and that is what is going on.

  • Maybe he is coming down with a cold. I always could smell when my kids where coming down with colds. Didnt smell like pickles though. Some kind of infection going on here, get him checked out asap
