Healing: Redness and itching as well as soreness can be seen around skin stitches at this time. Localized redness with itching and soreness can represent the starting of an infection. You need to let your surgeon know about this and if it worsens, you should see your surgeon.
Yeast or staph: If you have a piercing, this could be a bacterial infection like staph. Even without a piercing, yeast infections also start in that area because it is warm and moist. Clean it carefully with a q tip and some peroxide for a couple of days, and try putting some lotrimin (clotrimazole) anti-yeast cream in the area. If the redness spreads, you get fever or you have increased pain, see your doctor right away.
Get it checked: This is probably an infection and may need oral antibiotics to treat as well as topical. You didn't mention if it was pierced, but if so, removal might be necessary for it to heal.

An infection brewing: It seems that you have an infection there. Unfortunately, some have a very deep belly-button hole which can trap moisture/debris and can get infected. Early fungal infection can have itching to it, but bacterial infection typically causes more swelling. If an infected cyst is ruptured, it can stink. Since you are having pain, I suspect bacterial cause. Consult doc for eval. Good luck.
Yeast infection??: Yeast like to grow in warm moist areas like a "belly button" (umbilicus) also in the groin. Axilla, vagina etc. Make an appointment with your family physician.
