Belly button is red, swollen and looks infected, why?
Hi just a little backround. I have been taking ginger baths, where you put 1/4 cup of ginger in your hot/warm bath and soak in it, you do this for 20 minutes to 40 minutes and it helps detox your system. I took one the day on Friday of last week. I just noticed that the inside of my belly button is red, a little swollen and looks infected. I hadn't noticed it until just now. Do you think the bath had something to do with it? I quit drinking over 3 weeks ago and my body has been adjusting but this is just to weird. I am 40 yrs old and female.
If you have any insight thanks. I know how to treat it but where did it come from? Another detoxing thing from quitting?
Re: Belly button is red, swollen and looks infected, why?
That is really strange. Do you have your belly button peirced or anything like that? I have never heard of anyone getting the inside of their belly button infected. Not unless there was a would of some sort in there....? How are you going to treat it?
