another person using the stall after me, I am sure gets the odor too.

there doesn`t seem to be a color change...no pain or burning
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

OK

Assuming you don't have a urinary tract infection then here's what you can do for this--

Oral probiotics

100mg chlorophyll tablet three times a day

Drink lots of water--at least 8 glasses a day

That should clear up the strong smell

Please let me know if you need any more information
