Belly Button Bleeding And Sore
Omphalitis: Belly button infections are very rare in adults. It may be due to something as simple as a skin infection or infected hair follicle. I would recommend local wound care and antibiotics. If it returns, a ct scan is needed to check for any umbilical cord-related remnants which may need to be removed. ...Read more

Bleeding from navel: After birth, the blood vessels in the umbilical cord spasm and then seal over, and when the cord dries, the blood vessels have retraced and scarred close.

5 month old duaghter we were in bath I noticed her belly button bleeding I can pull it back there seems to be an opening she seems to be fine no crying no fever
5: 5 months old is a little old to still be having problems with the belly-button. Most kids lose their umbilical cords a few weeks after they are born and the belly button heals within a few days after that. It could be an infection, injury, granuloma or something she was born with, but if her belly button is draining or bleeding, she should be seen by her doctor. ...Read more

See your GYN: First thing is to check a pregnancy test if you are sexually active (even if using contraceptives). Some women have abnormal spotting while they are pregnant. Either way, you'll end up seeing your gynecologist: if positive for management of the pregnancy, and if negative for further evaluation. ...Read more

Need more info: I assume there was no trauma. Is it a very deep belly button? Sometimes you can have a yeast infection with ulceration of the skin. If that is the case you can try some anti-fungal powders and keep it as clean and dry as possible. Sometimes keeping a gauze sponge packed into it will help wick out the moisture and keep the skin edges apart. ...Read more
I've recently had bleeding and discharge from the belly button it started as a pain then started bleeding with discharge. All my lower stomach tender?
That's an: Unusual picture. Spontaneous bleeding fron the navel followed by lower abdominal pain? I would get seen for that one, it's quite unusual. No trauma? No peircings? No previous surgery there? Maybe you'll find a better answer but that's a new one on me. Increasing low abdominal pain is a reason to go in despite the bleeding navel. Get back with us on that one, teach us something. Good luck. ...Read more

Vitelline duct: This could be a vitelline duct remnant, a leftover from your maternal fetal connection to your mother. Sometimes in young adults there will be the development of an inflammed and draining site in the base of the umbilicus. The repair is simple, much like an umbilical hernia repair. There may be a bad smell from the drainage. I suggest you seek the opinion of a surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more
