hi, if you don't clean your belly button with a Q-TIP after a shower then it's normal it will smell. It's kind of like ears really... if it burns or the discharge is heavy i'd advise seeing a dr, i doubt it's anything too serious though, maybe just thrush or something caused by the heat.

Hello, Most likely it seems like an ingrown hair or boil in the belly button which on rupture has resulted in bloody discharge. In that case, you need to clean the belly button with antiseptics and antibiotics and take some oral antibiotics. The other possibility is yeast infection of the belly button or some other fungal infection. Fungal infections often present with bad smell or odor.

open up your belly button more than you would normally with a tweezers and get out whatever is in there, its probably hair or some dirt in your belly button. It causes a sore belly button and a smelly puss to come out.
I have researched online through the years that I have had this problem and I read that it can be a fungus developing in the belly button similar to athletes foot. This causes your belly button to dry out and crack. Then the bleeding comes with the horrible smell that follows with the discharge and blood. I went to the store and bought some athletes foot creme and spray and both seem to work.

i had laperscopic surgery and they made an incision in my belly button and a week after the operation my belly button started to hurt really bad and then it started to drain fluid mostly clear and i went to the doc and she gave me antibiotics. it took about another week but it finally cleared up.

My husband is a very fit 44 year old, who -- for the past couple of months -- has had a bloody, smelly discharge oozing from his belly button, without pain. His internist says it is a tear in the abdomnial wall and that it's abdominal fluid leaking out. For treatment, he has my husband filling up his belly button with a paste made of sugar and water, supposedly to dry out the belly button and cause it to heal. If that doesn't work, he says he will sew up the tear.
