Belly Button Oozing
Oozing is not normal
Belly Button Troubles :-(
- Gently clean the belly button with mild soap and water twice daily. Use a cotton tipped swab to GENTLY clean deeper areas that are not easily accessible.
- Apply a clear antibiotic ointment and light gauze cover (avoid Neosporin as this may cause a skin irritation in some).
- Use a 50:50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water to clean the belly button if there is crusted blood present.
- Communicate weekly with your physician, either in person or with photographs.
