There's bruseing and redness around my wife's belly button what does that mean?

Belt buckle?

Skin
A metal belt buckle can cause nickel ions to dissolve in sweat and be carried to the skin, where they often cause a severe allergic reaction.

Right side of my stomach hurts near my belly button with redness and bruising. Any ideas?

Get evaluated!

Bruise
Could be a soft tissue infection within the skin, or could indicate a problem under the skin such as appendicitis or pancreatitis. I recommend prompt evaluation by a physician.

My baby11mo. Has redness around her belly button only, it's a week now.. What could this be? Can I put anything on it?

Inflammation

Abdomen
Redness around the belly button is much more common in newborns than at 11 months. Earlier it would certainly be a local infection and potentially quite serious. At this age, a bug bite, with a local reaction is more likely. Some warm most packs would be useful. Then put on a topical antibiotic salve (neosporin) or better still calendula ointment

Probably

an infection, but you can have congenital persistent connection from umbilicus to internal organs. So have a doctor take a look at it.

My husband had a cramp in stomach 2 wks ago now his belly button is bulging he has fever and redness around it and is in sever pain. ?

See a doctor ASAP

Abdomen
This sounds quite serious and there should be no delay in seeking medical attention. There is no way to tell whether this is coming from within the abdominal cavity or the pain is due to skin or facial plane infection, but in any event this needs immediate evaluation and care. Good luck.

i have a inny belly button , i shower regularly and juat recently i notixed redness, moist , and dryness around the crater part of my belly button?

Belly Button Problem

Red, Moist, and Dry belly-buton crater. Red and Moist? Can't be both. If it itches it might be an allergy to soap, to snaps on jeans, laundry detergent, a yeast infections, and other skin conditions. If it bothers you with itching and some soreness, check with your dermatologist or regular physician.

My 6 week old baby's belly button sticks out and swollen. When I gently push it in, it sounds and feels like it has fluid in it? Is this normal. Thanx

?hernia

It might be an umbilical hernia, which is not uncommon. However, it cannot be diagnosed without a physical exam, so I would mention it to your pediatrician at your next visit. He or she needs to feel the belly button, determine if it is a hernia, and if so find out what size it is. Small ones can close on their own, larger ones sometimes need help.
