Pussy bleeding from belly button?

Pussy bleeding from belly button?

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. (btw-the adjective of "pus" is purulent, not pussy). ...Read more

Why does my belly button leak a yellowish clear fluid off and on that smells. Have had 6 belly surgeries.3 that involed insions thru the belly button.?

Not normal: This is difficult to say without more history and an exam, but it is certainly not normal. Possibilities include a non-healing wound down in the base of the belly button, a cyst from trapped skin that resulted from the healing after the most recent surgery, or, perhaps, infection of artificial material left in the incision (sutures, mesh, etc.). Please see the most recent surgeon soon! ...Read more

I'm constipated belly pain above the belly button sweet vagina smell?

I'm constipated belly pain above the belly button sweet vagina smell?

Fix it: If you have pain from constipation, fix the pain. You can try an enema, milk of magnesia, miralax (polyethylene glycol). Most important to fixing constipation, however, is to drink more fluids and eat more fiber. I'm not sure what you were referring to by sweet vagina smell. The vagina shouldn't really smell... If it does, then you could have a bacterial infection and that is something nurse or doctor can help you w. ...Read more

Should a outie belly button ever go in?

Should a outie belly button ever go in?

No: You probably have a hernia and it can be repaired to make an innie. The hernia can be fixed and a cosmetic procedure can be done at the same time. Be careful who does this so that it looks good. I perform more cosmetic belly button surgeries in a month than most surgeons so in an entire year. http://www.drschulmanplasticsurgery.com/body/umbilicoplasty/. ...Read more

Stinky yellow fluid in belly button?

Stinky yellow fluid in belly button?

Clean better: Honestly, the most common reason i find for this is simply needing to clean more completely. I know that may sound mean. However, sometimes infections can occur especially in those whose umbillicus or belly button had for instance a skin fold creating a pocket that is more easily infected and/or much harder to keep clean. This may require antibiotics and even surgery to correct. ...Read more

1)can patent urachus suddenly occur out of the blue at age of 20 in men?2)can poking ur belly button punture a hole that lets urine leak out?

1) Yes. 2) No.: A patent urachus is a still open congenital connection between the umbilicus (bellybutton) and the dome of the bladder. Poking your bellybutton will not cause it. A patent urachus is manifested by urine leaking out of the bellybutton or infection of the abdominal wall or bladder. Although we usually see it in younger children, it can become apparent in an older child or adult. Surgery is needed. ...Read more
