Typically, : Typically, strong smelling urine in a normal person can be from either dehydration, diet (asparagus can make urine smell very potent!) or from medications and vitamins. As long as your child is healthy, growing well, eating well, and has no complaints, it is most likely temporary and should cause no concern. If you notice a change in appearance of your child's urine or if he has fever or abdominal pain, you should contact your child's doctor. They will be able to check his urine and rule out other problems such as a urinary tract infection. Good luck!
