Hi, my umbilicus itches and has grey discharge with very bad smell. Been doing alcohol swab for a week but didn't work. Should I apply antibiotic cream?

Hi, my umbilicus itches and has grey discharge with very bad smell. Been doing alcohol swab for a week but didn't work. Should I apply antibiotic cream?

No: Omphalitis on an adult is usually due to a very deep umbilicus [persistent urachus may be the cause] and a hairy abdomen.

There: There are several possibilities including psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and skin allergy. I would recommend that you only use a gentle cleanser when cleaning your hands (like cerave or cetaphil), and use a moisturizer cream such as aquaphor, cetaphil, eucerin, or cetaphil cream twice daily. If not better after a week or so, consider a trip to a dermatologist who can make an accurate diagnosis and formulate a good treatment plan for you. You might need a steroid cream/ointment to clear this up. I hope that helps! ...Read more
