Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection in navel

Avatar f tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be due to yeast infection of the belly button or due to some other fungal infection. Fungal infections often present with bad smell or odor. Keep the area clean and with a clean dry ear bud gently clean the navel. Also apply some mild steroid cream like dermacort and antifungal cream like clotrimazole and see if it helps. If the symptoms persist then oral antifungal drugs may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.
Avatar f tn Is the fluid or drainage odorous. I am wondering if this could be an infection or a yeast type of a condition. I am certain it is not normal. Here's a link to a 2002 post on MH with a similar concern: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/Drainage-from-navel/show/231648 Please see your physician. He/she can give you a definite diagnosis. I hope you will keep in touch and let us know what you discover.
Avatar n tn Also, Ive been told that this can be a symptom of a yeast infection. You might want to see a doctor and inquire about this.
Avatar n tn Maybe your eruptions on the chest are eczema. Maybe your navel rash is a yeast infection. I really don't know. But a competent skin doctor should be able to examine you, perform culture tests if necessary, and treat you appropriatley. Good luck. Dr.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing for quite a long time this, I should say, abnormal discharge in my navel and it smells really bad. Can you help me with this? I don't think this is a yeast infection coz I'm not pregnant and I am still a virgin. I can't understand this thing!

Avatar n tn Sounds like a yeast infection. Don't know what to do for it though. Is it sore, red? If you go to the drug store and ask the pharmacist he can tell you what to use OTC.
Avatar n tn This may sound gross but I had the same problem when I was a teen and the doctor said I had a yeast infection in my belly button. He gave me some cream to put in it, but just to be on the safe side you should see your doctor and let them figure out what it is. I don't want to steer you wrong. Plus I heard that alcohol will dry out your skin but can also prolong the infection so that's probably not a good idea either. Go to the doc.
Avatar n tn hello, i want to reason about pain in navel of sister.most of time she suffered from hernia of navel. last year she had gone under surgery of intistine.after that she has suffered pointed pain in navel which is unbearable.can u help me to know exact reason of this type of suffering.
Avatar n tn I thought it was a yeast infection or something, since people said you can get those in 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 f tn I have been on them for a week now and I am still feeling bloated, gassy, my stomach feel hard and I just want to sit and not mive because I don't feel well at all. My question is, a health center in Reno told me maybe I have a yeast infection still my colon she recommended I try a natual herb meication called GI-Yeast and it does make me feel much better. Is this true, Can one have a yeast infection in ones GI trac? If so what is the best treatment? I have called the Dr.
Avatar n tn At times, I also experience a burning pain to the far right just under the ribs, and it feels hard. My physician sent me to a GI specialist, and had endoscopy. He found a yeast infection in my esophogus, and some irritation of the stomach. He treated me for acid reflux. No relief of symptoms. He then ordered a colonoscopy, and said everything was fine but found 3 polyps that were noncancerous, but removed them. I was told that they were the type that could turn cancerous.
Avatar n tn I have a light pain in the knuckles when I wake up in the morning.I also sometimes feel numbness in the knuckles when the itching becomes acute. What is the diagnosis and what medicines should I take ?
Avatar n tn I was many years with a mystery illness before I found it was yeast infection. Blood in the urine should have been investigated its usually associated with infection did he have any investigation??
Avatar m tn Hello, I am in my late 40's and aproximatlly 4 weeks ago i had protected vaginal/oral sex with a sex worker in a massage parlor. Total episode was less than 20 minutes in length. This was only 1 of three parters in over 20 years. About two weeks ago I started feeling pain around my butt bone, i was very tired (I mean uncharacteristically tired), bizarre pains inside my penis not related to urination and the skin on my penis was/is irritable.
Avatar n tn A person under lots of stress can be more prone to these than those that aren't. Candida, a type of yeast infection, can cause some of these issues as well. it is difficult to diagnose, most do it via elimination of yeast containing foods, drugs, vitamins, etc. Candida can cause a weakened immune system and this in turn can cause the issues. Are you exposed to a lot of chemicals, or molds, if so, try to avoid them and yeast foods and see how you feel.
Avatar n tn Have you ever had a laproscopy? It could be due to the surgery. I actually got a yeast infection in 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 MY UNCLE HAD SOMETHING LIKE THAT IT WAS A SINIUS INFECTION AND IF UNDETECATED COULD RESULT IN DEATH THEIR IS ANTIBIOTICS THAT HE TOOK AND IT WAS CLEARED UP.
Avatar f tn you know the stuff that you wash your privet with this is very gentle and it will start to kill the infection, so you need to wash your navel with this and then put some yeast infection cream in 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 n tn I was visiting with my mom the last two days and she made me a salad with brewer's yeast on top two nights in a row and now my ears are itching again (I normally don't eat brewer's yeast). Who knows if beer and brewer's yeast are really the cause, but my symptoms are enough to make me think that they have something to do with it. (I can eat bread and other things with yeast in it, but maybe beer and brewer's yeast puts me over the edge.
Avatar n tn Yeast 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 Could you recommend a good naturopath or nutritionist in our area? We live in south Florida. Could she have a cyst in her stomach or something or would that show up on all the tests. She hasn't had a colonoscopy done yet but what would that show if everything else checks out okay? Please help we are now on our eighth doctor.

Avatar n tn Yesterday evening I had a couple pains in my navel like sharp pokes or pinches. Not anything that would make you double over in pain but it was noticeable. My brest tenderness has been building up over the last couple of days. Today I have slight pain in my lower back and hip area. I also have pain in my knee joints. I normally get the in my hip and knee pain when af shows up.
Avatar n tn It gets extremely itchy, then I notice it is all red and irritated, there may be a yellowish dried small amount of drainage in it and the odor if a put a finger in it and smell is like soured milk. Could this be a yeast infection? I notice I get this every winter. Help! What do I use OTC to get it better? Next problem - I got a itchy small reddish looking spots, sort of like pimples between my breasts. I notice that my bra irritates it also. What is this and again what do I use?
Avatar m tn If the rash is spotted it could be a yeast infection from the moisture of sweating. I got them in the Dominican when I was too hot and when I was having fevers for the first couple weeks after my surgery. My rings expand too and I think you taught me why they do that. They never did change shape or anything until it became warmer out, so the sweating makes sense. So thank you! If the rash slowly moves to your navel, it could. Have you considered an allergy?
Avatar m tn my boyfriend has a wierd greenish dishcarge from his belly button, it smells rilly bad, he has no irritation or anything that i can see from the outside, but when he puts alcohol on it it rilly hurts him, he says hes never actually felt the end of his belly button, he actually thinks it has no end. Is this even possible or does he just have some kind of infection? I dont think its yeast because its not white or itchy. What could be the problem?
