Remotely possible.: The belly button is a warm, moist secluded area where infection can occur. Clean it out gently with hydrogen peroxide twice a day. If symptoms get worse or redness spreads, antibiotics are recommended. Re: association with vaginal bleeding, it could occur in the unlikely case that ectopic endometrium implanted there.

What does it mean when your belly button is swelled up?

What does it mean when your belly button is swelled up?

?Hernia?: A bulge at the belly button is usually secondary to a hernia, which is a hole in the muscles of the abdominal wall. These bulges often "yo-yo" in and out, but can become "incarcerated" and permanently protrude. Less likely, an infection may be present (omphalitis): this would be warm, red, and very tender.
