1 Bump

Swollen belly button

So my 3 year old son was complaining about his belly button yesterday morning. It was a red and a little swollen. With some red spots around his belly button. I cleaned it & put some cream on it. Then this morning it was crusty, greenish color. I washed it & put more cream on before bed. He complained a little that it bothered him but dosen't hurt. Anyone know what this could be?

  • I don't know but it sounds like some kind of infection, maybe just a skin reaction to something?? Good Luck!!
