In brief: 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) Hope this helps! Dr Z
