I recently was told I have a UTI, small microscopic traces of blood in my urine, urine has a hell of a smell to it. I'm a non smoker (2 months quit). Circumcised and clean. When I urinate there is no pain at all, however, at times my crotch area feels quite warm, which Im contributing to the UTI. Im taking antibiotics for the condition which should clear. I'm just curious as to why my crotch has a strong not pleasant odor that I can't describe exactly. Doesn't go away after shower or even lotion (both Ive been using for a long time). I've read several things but Im not sure exactly what is the cause of this or even what could be so I can deal with it accordingly other than its the UTI. If anyone has a solution/answer other than the UTI or just experience or plain helpful, Id be appreciative.
