Re: Urgent Belly Button Discharge

This question was on Oprah yesterday. Dr. Oz said it is caused from having a infected cyst or tumor behind the belly button.

Re: Urgent Belly Button Discharge

Hi Tracey. That sounds really nasty. Im sorry I cant help you but I really hope you get it sorted soon. Let us all know how you get on. Im curious but did your GP perform any tests to check for bacteria or fungal in your belly button? Its a swab test and it helps the Doctors determine what type of infection you have and how to treat it.
