Hello, i have a odd yellow, orangery substance in my belly button, i have used hydrogen peroxide, and anti-bacterial cream, but i have only been able to get a little bit of the gunk out, and when i pull with tweezers it won't come out?

It has to be examined and then whatever is found will be treated. Pl do not try to manipulate the area yourself. Keep it clean and cover it with some gauze and see a surgeon.. good luck
