Question Belly button irritation

About 3 days ago, my belly button was itchy with a little bit of redness. Now it's red inside with some kind of discharge and an awful odor. I did some research on it and the only thing that I could come up with was that it's a yeast infection? Has anyone had this problem ?

Yes, I've had this problem for a long time. My dermatologist prescribed me a cream with Canesten in it and says it is indeed fungal in nature.

Did your dermatologist happen to say what caused it?

No she didn't. I have a whole host of other skin problems, so I just figure this is just one more thing I have to look after. It's not constantly irritated, but when it is, I use the cream, and it goes away.

Ohhhh okay. I have multiple things wrong with me too (not skin problems) and I was just curious to see if it just happens or something triggers it.

Thanks for your replies!
