  • I think it's an infection also, when I am pregnant I get something similar, and once my doctor did a culture and wanted to hospitalize me, but I got it to clear up on it's own (suprised the doctor).

    What I did was us an anti-bacterial hand soap and cleaned the belly button and rinsed it with the hottest water I could handle, dry it really well and place a little triple anti-biotic in it. It took about a week but it cleared up nicely.
