I have recently developed a smelly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. Does anyone know what the cause of this is? I see my Doctor on Dec 18th for a follow up. I was not sure if I should try to get in earlier then that. Its gross. I have had other surgerys for cyst removal and never had this problem.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. It'll heal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> that case, you need to clean the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> 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.
While I was recoving I got an infection and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> started to leak this really smelly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. I was treated for the infection and recovered for my surgery with in a month. BUT a year later and my belly button still discharges 1 every two weeks or so. I went to my doctor and he said everything why fine, but I've never had any problems with my belly button before. Is this normal? How long will this last?
My incision heald fine but did have a smelly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. Well Starting a couple months ago I have been have this same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. Same smell and all. I bath twice a day and clean my belly button with anitbacterial ointment and anything possible. Yet I still have this smelly discharge. What IS IT?
I know this is kinda gross hut does anyone have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>? I have an inner one and ever since I've been pregnant when I clean it (which I do everyday now) a white yellow smelly discharge is on the q tip.. anyone have this problem? It doesn't hurt at all.
I have researched online through the years that I have had this problem and I read that it can be a fungus developing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> similar to athletes foot. This causes your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and a week after the operation my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> oozing from his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>, 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. there is also well defined redness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the naval itself where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> 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.

I had a tubal ligation yesterday where they made one 1 cm incision at the top of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and last night I noticed that all around my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> area is swollen and slightly painfull. More swollen on one side too then the other side. Is this normal and will my tummy go down to being flat again. How long till the swelling goes away?
For 2 years now, he has been having severe pain below his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. 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 had my gall bladder removed and now I am having a smelly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> button and a little bit of bleeding. Should I be worried?
I have done them all by myself and never had an infection (tongue, lip, nipples, eyebrow, 6 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> each ear, top and bottom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and my nose) have never had the white thick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span></span> anf <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my 40's and I haven't had a stinky liquid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
