Avatar n tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> is a natural part of the flora of your body and in moist places it can grow out of control until it irritates. It can be in your mouth, underarms, vagina, anywhere really. You should make sure to keep the area clean and dry. Try some gold bond powder or otc clotrimazole and clean it twice a day, if it doesn't clear up you in a few days, let your dr know, ok?
Avatar n tn Have you ever had a laproscopy? It could be due to the surgery. I actually got a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my navel quite a while after surgery. It is a dark moist place and cooties love that. I would see your family doctor for a antibotic.
Avatar n tn in that case, you need to clean the belly button with antiseptics and antibiotics and take some oral antibiotics. The other possibility is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> or some other fungal infection. Fungal infections often present with bad smell or odor. My advice would be to get it examined from a dermatologist and if need arises, then a KOH examination and culture sensitivity of the discharge can be done.
Avatar n tn I thought it was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> or something, since people said you can get those <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your navel, but I have never had a yeast infection *anywhere*, so wasn't sure. Usually, when I find that it has been "leaking" I swab it out with water, then with hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide always bubbles and fizzes, and recently, I have been experiencing sharp pain inside my belly button and a burning, itching sensation that last for some time after using the peroxide.
Avatar n tn I have this reoccuring rash (?) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> area (I'm an innie). I'm not sure if it's eczema or not. It only started occuring the past 6-8 months, and it's only in that area. First there's a bump and then it starts getting extremely itchy. Then it goes away after a month or 2 and then it comes back (this is the 2nd or 3rd time now). I think that it's kind of odd that it's just in my belly button. I haven't really changed any living habits or eating habits. (And no belly piercings).
Avatar n tn Lay on your back and fill your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> with hydrogen peroxide. It will bubble and clean out the bacteria trapped down in their. Repeat this for a few days. Promise it will go away.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have an innie <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>, and it smells real bad. I try to clean it every night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the shower with soap, but by the next day it smells again. I can even smell the odor on my shirt in the area off my belly button. It smells alot stronger than normal body odor. Is there something I can use to get rid of whatever is the cause? It is very sensitive in there too, I once maid it bleed cleaning it. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hello. I have a white milky discharge with a fould odor coming from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. I have had 3 laparoscoies in the past for endometriosis. Could this drainage be coming from that or do I have some other infection. I have had it for a really long time. Every since about my second surgery.
Avatar m tn ( can anyone tell me what they think, or just give me some advice i noticed about 3 months ago, it looks like very dry skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>.. its white, doesnt hurt, itch or swell and there is no discharge. no matter how much i wash it, it wont go away. its just there and ugly.
776309 tn?1235569559 After a shower, I dry it out really well and put the cream around the outside, I don't really even have to put it deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. It has eliminated the smell and stays relatively dry.
Avatar f tn I know this is kinda gross hut does anyone have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> discharge? 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.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. It causes a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and a smelly puss to come out.
573351 tn?1246321414 I have a red rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and on both breast but it is localized to the aereolas only, it does not extend out. My breasts do not itch at all, my belly button does midly from time to time. Not even bad enough that I want to scartch it. I had the same rash this winter, but just on the aereolas at that time, not belly button. No discharge at all. Any ideas??
Avatar n tn stinky <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> can result from an imbalance <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> body chemistry. try cleansing your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> with a q-tip dipped in tea tree oil twice a day for a week... it's great for clearing up bacteria and fungus and will likely resolve it. good luck!
Avatar m tn Well, so far it's ended up having quite a parameter. It's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my front pubic area? And up my stomach a little, below my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>, and then into the creases under my stomach. It goes down my thighs about half way, and then up my butt crack and under the folds? of my butt? I'm not super large, but I hope that makes sense. But now on the right side it seems to be all cleared up except a little in my inner thigh, but the left side is still there. It still itches but not as horribly.
Avatar n tn Ask your doctor to use a swab to test the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>. I have a friend whose daughter has to use a G-tube to eat a special formula because of a deadly protein allergy, and the tube site (similar to a belly button in a lot of ways) gets yeast infections all the time. The skin gets irritated, burns, cracks, and bleeds. It also puts out discharge if they don't catch the infection in time.
Avatar f tn Okay so a few weeks ago i was casually scratching my stomach when i poked into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and something small hard and white came out. Honestly to me i would say it looked like a tomato seed but a bit smaller and it had little hairs attached to it also my belly button had a bad smell to it. Today though again i decided to poke into my belly button and the same small white hard clump with little hairs fell out.
Avatar f tn you know the stuff that you wash your privet with this is very gentle and it will start to kill the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>, so you need to wash your navel with this and then put some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> cream <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your navel and doing this everyday in 2 to3 days the infection should be gone. If not go to a Dr. and get something to get rid of the infection. NOW!!!
Avatar m tn I do have molluscum contagiosum, which i still have a few bumps (6 inches below my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>) and just letting them ride their natural course. The discoloration has come and gone, but seems to be getting worse lately. Also i have been expriencing pain at the tip of my penis. My Dr. said it sounded like a male yeast infection, as i eat alot of bread products, drink alot of beer, etc. So first i used monistat per his instructions, kinda helped.
Avatar f tn Umbilical fistulas are narrow tubes the outer skin with anything inside like intestine, mesentry etc. Boils <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the umbilicus can also burst and release blood and pus. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your case there appears to a severe infection, that could either be an abscess or a fistula. Please do not delay treatment. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
968139 tn?1247551553 I took a tiny tiny pair of tweezes are cleaned them with iodine and put it inside to see if there was anything I can pull out like a dog hair or something odd like that but no, instead a whiteish foul smelling ooze started coming out. I put iodine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and let it sit there for a while which burned really bad. I don't know what to do. I would go to the hospital but I have had really bad experiences there and such PLUS I don't have insurance.
573351 tn?1246321414 I have a red rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and on both breast. It is localized to the aereolas only, it does not extend any further out onto the breasts. My breasts do not itch at all, my belly button does midly from time to time. Not even bad enough that I want to scartch it. I had the same rash this winter, but just on the aereolas at that time, not the belly button. No discharge at all. I have had the rash now for a month and a half.
Avatar f tn i now have a trail of it going down my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span>, almost to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span>. My husband does not have it, nor my 3 year old i do not think it is contagious. Now I am pregnant again..and health coverage again! so, i am going to re-attempt figuring out what exactly this thing is. I looked at the images of Acanthosis Nigricans, and they do seem to be an extreme version of whati have, however i began getting them when i was thin, not fat.
Avatar m tn The standard HSV blood tests accurately distinguish between HSV-1 and HSV-2.) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the meantime, I really wouldn't worry about herpes. If I were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your situation I would ccontinue unprotected sex with my wife, with no fear of infecting her with anything. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn The pain is still in center of stomach, centered between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>belly</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>button</span> and bra band. It feels like I could just reach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> and pluck it out, it is so constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> location. I can't seem to relate it to any triggers. I believe I have also noticed I have floating, oily diarrhea once or twice while in the midst of an episode. Can hurt for a couple of days and then dull down for weeks but still be present. Then completely gone for months.
