Took out navel stone, belly button has odor clear/a little yellow oil or discharge that form crust. No redness or pain. Will mupirocin work? Just started using it. Do I put it deep inside belly button? I only put some on the outside ring area

In brief: Navel Stone

Yes mupirocin can help if there is an infection and you can apply it deep into your belly button twice a day for 7days.
If your skin becomes indurates, warm, tender, worsening, very red, and draining increases you must see your Primary Care Physician.
