That can be a bad sign. Seriously.

Here's a link for starters. Don't depend on Wikipedia for anything more than a starting point, though.

It can happen just from eating too much sugar, but if it continues, seriously see a doctor. Not worth messing around with.

If this has been ongoing, have a urinalysis and blood test. Metabolic diseases like diabetes can have a distinct sometimes sweet smell. Many cities now have lab places that you can have lab work done very affordably without seeing a primary care doctor if you wish.
