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.
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. Any blooding from the navel would be belly button bleeding. Bleeding would suggest inadequate healing of the umbilical cord stump or presence of inflamed tissue such ...Read more
See below: Highly unlikely. Some bleeding as the cord separates is normal. If there is mucous coming from the site, or the site is red and swollen, your child should be seen.See 1 more doctor answer
Not normal: You need an exam and other testing, not normal to have that happen for now reason or if no piercing or surgery has been done.
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. Any blooding from the navel would be belly button bleeding. Bleeding would suggest inadequate healing of the umbilical cord stump or presence of inflamed tissue such as a pyogenic granuloma.
No: I don't see how these two would be related. If the bleeding persists you should see a doctor. Take care!See 2 more doctor answers
Why is my belly button bleeding? I don't have a piercing. It looks like it ripped open on the inside. It's not dripping out but it moist with blood.
Infection: Most likely strep or staph unless u had a recent laparoscopy.
Why is my belly button bleeding and painful? This started 2 days ago after I had mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD removed. Please help...
Association: I have heard no accounts, nor can think of any reason removing an iud would make your belly button bleed. Honestly, outside if trauma, I cannot imagine why your belly button would be bleeding. If its heavy get examined but it's not related to the iud in any way I can imagine.
See below: These symptoms can only be adequately addressed by your doctor in real-time (face-to-face). Only after a thorogh evaluation, possibly including labs and other studies, can he/she determine what's wrong and what to do about it.
I just had a cystectomy yesterday and I just wouldl Ike to know if belly button bleeding is normal?
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.
Hi I have had nausea, pain above belly button, bleeding between periods, more than 30 day menstrual cycles what could it be?
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.
It appears to have stopped now but my belly button has been bleeding (sometimes bright red sometimes seemingly watered down) and is sore? No bad smell
See doctor: Bleeding without any known reason should be checked by a doctor. The soreness suggests that there may be an infection going on.
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.
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.
Not normal: That is not a common thing to happen. A doctor needs to determine what is wrong.
