I have A burning sensation inside my belly button and it hurts when I touch it?

Interesting: That is an unusual situation. The belly button can accumulate debris/sweat and may have developed an irritation. There are some oily glands there. Clean well with mild soap/water. If redness apply a little bit of neosporin with a qtip. If not better in AM or worsens rapidly see MD to make sure not an infection. If you have a piercing nearby may be having reaction to nickel in metal. ...Read more

Your babies umbilical cord is attached to its belly button. Your belly button is not involved. Umbilical hernias can occur during pregnancy. If you see or feel a bulge around your belly button have your obgyn check it out. ...Read more

My belly buttons feels very cold and almost like a slight burning sensation. It doesn't spread anywhere else on my stomach just around my belly button?

Cold, burning: Frequently there is slight inflammation of the umbilical and I would check for mild redness or slight odor in the area. If none is present, perhaps there is some minor irritability of the superficial nerves around the umbilical area. In any event it doesn't appear to be a significant problem. Keep the umbilicus clean and dry. ...Read more

C Ur Surgeon First: Burning pain is typical of nerve irritation which is not uncommon following hernia repair. While this usually resolves within 6 months, it's persistence warrants intervention. I recommend that you see your surgeon just to be certain that no recurrence exists. If not, it would be appropriate to see a chronic pain specialist. They can identify the responsible nerve and deaden it. ...Read more

Right side: Right sided abdominal burning distress can be due to abdominal muscle irritation/inflammation or strain, gall bladder disease or appendicitis especially if right lower abdominal tenderness is also present.
