Dear Lapa6,


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.

Without an exam it is hard to suggest what is best to do, but it is best to see a doctor for evaluation.
