Belly butt very red: 21 F notes: I am an inny. I noticed earlier today that my inner belly button is a very very bright red... This is not normal at all and I'm very concerned... ? ANS: send picture. Suspect you have accumulated a lot of belly button lint and it is infected. Washing is always good. Send picture next time. If not better see your Dr.
