Belly button bleedinig and irritation
I am an obese 32 year old woman and have been experiencing an irritated navel for about two weeks.It seemd to be clearing up but I woke up this morning with drainage with a pink color so I cleaned my navel with a q tip and found bright pink blood and no puss but a noticeable smell. I am really worried and scared we are financially sapped we have med insurance but can't afford our 30 dollar co-pay to see a doc let alone the bill after ward any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Judy

Re: Belly button bleedinig and irritation
hey there! i have this issue every so often
its from there being soap and water or sweat in there. Make sure it stays dry. when you get out of the shower put a q tip in there or make sure it gets dried really well. also, I clean mine with peroxide. I clean it out (dry it) with a q tip, then swab a peroxide soaked q tip, then a dry one to dry it up. If i do that once or twice a day when Im having that issue it clears up with in a day or so!

hope that helps!
