Hi I am 24 Female unmarried no medical condition Today morning I noticed some thing in my navel it was slightly pink moist to touch and bit smelly. This has happned few months back,but went away by itself. I though navel discharged happened in children only. What could it be. thnks.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum. navel discharge can occur in adults as well. This can be because of infection. If the discharge is smelly, thick in consistency you must get yourself checked. You need to keep the navel area clean, cleanse well with salt water and keep it dry.If this is not an infection and you are prone to this dischrges frequently you can use talcum powder to keep the area dry.Do not apply any medications without doctors consultation. Wish you good health
