See doctor: I appears that you have a infection (likely staph) which needs to be treated by a doctor. If you don't have one, go to the ER before this spreads further. Perhaps you can get some help on your meth addiction as well even though I don't believe these two events are related (unless you have been injecting the material).

Meth skin: Yes of course. You change your brain, skin, and mouth norms when you use this dangerous drug. Many users do not eat well. Their hormones get messed up. Their perceptions of reality get damaged. Their teeth become a problem and the skin gets dry, damaged, picked at. Please let your body heal and never use this substance again.See 1 more doctor answer

Several: The foul odor is due to a combination of factors, not the least of which is stagnant pus in a cavity with decay due to the inflammation. Investigators at the univ.

What could be the cause of my 8 year old son having too many white bloodcells in his urine? He has no infection amd no bacteria were found
WBC's in Urine: White blood cells (WBC's) in urine denote some inflammation, not necessairily infection. Make sure to get the urine test repeated after your son has been well hydrated as many times dehydration causes local inflammation and show white cells in urine. If repeat testing show persistance of WBC's, other causes of inflammation in bladder or kidney disease, including stones, need to be ruled out.
