Rinse it out in the tub or using a hand wand, dry it carefully with a twist of Kleenex, then finish with a big glob of Neosporin that you spread with the tip of your little finger to make sure it reaches all the crevices in your belly button. It'll heal in a few days. Good luck.
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.

Is this normal? How long will this last?

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. But if your belly button is leaking fluid for more then 24 hours and it is really sore you may have an abses(sp?) from tearing a stitch inside.
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 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.

For 2 years now, he has been having severe pain below his belly button in the middle of the abdomen. I have taken him to the doctor more than once and they find nothing. It's strange because it only happens every couple of months but when it happens, it's bad. He can't sit or stand straight and has to unbutton his pants. The doctors check his urine each time and find nothing. They almost seem to think he might be faking it.

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.

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.
I am a 47 year old female I have discharge from my belly button that is sometimes yellow or green I also have a smelly discharge under my belly anf in the folds of my thighs almost to my back i am obese I also get pains in my belly button and in my back and under arm area I have no insurance but need some advice on what to do
Finally I asked my doctor who told me there wasn't any truth to my dad's story and the best advice was to leave the holes alone and surgery may prove to be a solution. I'm now in my 40's and I haven't had a stinky liquid discharge in about 5 yrs. I've never broken any bones and I have a great immune system (best in family). I like the sprit hole idea! My great-great grandmother was a spiritualist, someone who can supposedly communicate with the spirit world.
