In brief: Locally desinfect
Some infections are local infection that is they stay in one area, such as in your case; however, in some occasion this type of infection may spread and become more dangerous, if it is local then, it can be cleaned with either peroxide or iodine, but if you develop fever, and your belly button become very red, warm to touch then you look for medical attention.
