I have a weird rash below my belly button right at the waste line. It's maybe about an inch in diameter. Somedays it itches other days its fine?
Contact Dermatitis: This sort of situation is often the result of contact with nickel metal from the back of the clasp on your pants. It will continue to bother you until you change to pants without exposed inner metal clasps and/or use thick shirts to completely block contact of your skin with the offending metal.

A year ago I was bitten by what I think was a deer tick in my belly button. I have a scar. Occasionally the area swells and itches. Is this normal?

Typically if the "bite" was infected, the symptoms would not be so intermittent, and it would be tender. However, "something" is irritating your skin. Since it has been going on for a year now, it may be time to see your Dr or a dermatologist the next time it swells up. (I wouldn't go when it's normal) ...Read more
Had a dark spot next to belly button for years. Sometimes itches and may be tiny knot underneath. No changes. Derm doesn't know. Any ideas, serious?
I have a small lump inside the upper right part of my belly button. It is soft. Occasionally it itches but most of the time it does not. Seems like hernias are all outside of belly button and not in.
Sounds like a hernia:
Umbilical hernias are common. They can be congenital or develop from a weakness in the tissue behind the navel.
All should be surgically repaired for they can grow - and, in worst cases, trap bowel in them which can be very serious.
The operation is to fix them is simple (day surgery) and not dangerous. Please do see a doctor for a proper diagnosis - it does sound like a hernia.

I have an itching sensation around my belly button area that just won't go away. Plus the inside of my belly button is really red. Should I worry?
NOT TO WORRY:
You should ask your Pharmacist to recommend an OTC (Over the Counter) CORTISONE containing CREAM which you should use liberally in the area. CAREFULLY clean the belly button then apply the Cream with a Q TIP and use the cream wherever the itch is!
If this doesn't help get some medical input from your PCP (primary care provider)
