Hello, First possibility is of a fungal infection of the belly button which may produce foul smelling yellowish or black discharge from the fungus and belly button is a humid place for fungus to thrive. If however the discharge is present throughout then possibility of a fistula is there where an abnormal passage forms between one organ like intestines and the outside of the skin. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a gynecologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

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 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.

I am a 40 yr old woman who has noticed a horrible odor and discharge coming from my belly button. there is also well defined redness in the naval itself where the discharge is coming from. The discharge itself is milky and clear but the odor is breathtaking. I also seem to have a large rash with odor in the fold of my stomach at the pubic level (My belly hangs over from previous surgeries and twin pregnancy.) My urine is also cloudy and smelly. I have stomach pain around the naval.
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.

I noticed a boil today on my pubic bone region, not on penis itself, i popped it to find a yellowish, smelly discharge. Some discomfort. Also there seems to be smaller almost pimple like bumps from the base of my penis extending almost to my belly button. they are not pimples though. My girlfriend does get for lack of a better term , extremely wet always, and most of the time i just wipe off with water and a towel, no soap. I am hoping this is what is causing this.
with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch. I take cranberry supplements to keep me flushed out for a UTI, which I was treated for last year.

I have done them all by myself and never had an infection (tongue, lip, nipples, eyebrow, 6 in each ear, top and bottom belly button and my nose) have never had the white thick discharge except for a piercing that i have taken out to close it up. my nipples have just gotten redone after my pregnancy, I had my doctor do a look over to make sure it was ok to breast feed. He told me that there was nothing wrong with my nipples and it would not effect breast feeding.
