Hi, I think it's a tumor which has spread to the belly skin. After getting ulcerated, they tend to throw foul smelling pus fluid. If that's only reason, she is going to emergency room, and no other new problem like breathing difficulty or severe pain, then I would suggest to see your doctor coming morning. Take care.
