Brief Answer:
Probably an infection of the belly button, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The symptoms seem to be related to an infection of the belly button.

A photo would be very helpful through the diagnosis.

It can be a bacterial infection or a fungal infection.

I recommend you to wash the area with antibacterial soap and dry it completely.

I recommend to use an antibiotic cream such as Neosporin cream for local application.

I also recommend avoiding tight and synthetic clothes.

Instead, I suggest to use cotton clothes.

If the symptoms continue I recommend to consult your physician for a physical examination and further treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
