Get treated: Certain infections are very common in small areas that can get sweaty and easily irritated like the "belly button" area. Doubt the surgery in 2009 had anything to do with your current issues, but getting the area evaluated is the first step as common infections such as fungal dermatitis are easily diagnosed and treated. Best wishes.
