I am sorry to hear about your belly button infection.
It is hard to come up with a diagnosis and to present you with the solution without physical examination.
I recommend that you seek consult with a board certified surgeon of ample experience. I am sure that you will be on the right track and on your infection will be addressed properly.
Thank you for your inquiry and the best of luck to you.
