Ulcer type sore in navel, pus, forming crusts, pain on bending. Medical attention required?

i have a ulcer like looking sore in my navel. It drains a little forming crusts. When I clean it it just drains again. It looks like the canker sores in your mouth. It is sore when I bend over. I am not overweight 115. But it sure hurts. Could it be something serious or can I just play it out by cleaning and keeping putting stuff on it OR do I have to see dr.

Hi.If this ulcer is a long standing one and is not healing it might be due to lurking infection (requires proper debridement) or due to increased blood sugar levels or due to pressure.I suggest you to take a surgeon's opinion for further management.Hope this helps.Take care.
