What causes persistent severe naval infection?
I have been suffering from navel infection for long now. I remember it happened 6.5 yrs back for the first time and I used homeopathic medicine and it was gone in 8days. Around 3 years back, it happened again and was gone with few antibiotics. 1.5 year back it happened again and antibiotics didn't work and doctor suggested for CT scan, nothing found. And, used copper sulphate to rub on it for few days and it was gone. 6 months back it happened again and I started homeopathic medicine again. Now, it happens whenever I don't use medicine. I could observe less hairs near to my navel now and some acne one by one to its near by. Please help me to get its final solution.
