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

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

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.
