Belly button injury? LOL I know it sounds silly.

16 years ago, when I was 8 months pregnant, I decided I just HAD to complete her baby room. I have had a sensitive belly button ever since. Lately it has started painfully itches and hurts in a wider area. Could it be tearing or something? I mentioned it to my doc and he just sort of shrugged. He isn't usually so dismissive, so maybe I am worried for nothing.  I had been quite ill so make he was just concentrating on that.  I am not sure if I sure deal with this more aggressively or just wait and see what happens?

  • Sounds like a hernia. My husband had a small one at birth and at age 36 lifted something at work and made it worse. They gave him a brace and some meds, but now he has a bimb into his belly button. You should have it checked out.
