Hello all,
I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have a child who has a weird symptom. We've already consulted his doctor, but to no avail.
Son has often had this really bizarre odor to him. It is transient...comes and goes with no particular pattern. It's a very sweet/chemically sweet smell. Not coming from any specific place, we just smell it near his face. My dh and I have noticed that when he smells particularly strong, his behavior is worse.
His urine is always clean for sugars, so it's not diabetes.
My google searches have only indicated diabetes, but no other option. Has anyone ever heard of such a weird thing?
