Inherited Disorders and Birth Defects
I `ve noticed that my 6 year olds breath smells like ammonia. Is this an indication that there is some sort of medical problem?
You should not normally smell ammonia and it may indicate that there is a medical problem. Your pediatrician would be the best person to answer this question. I recommend that you contact the pediatrician’s office right away.
