Please provide more information for better assessment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Welcome to health care magic, I have gone through your question and photograph you have attached with it.

At the outset I would like further information for better assessment of the condition like
Since how long you are having this problem?
Are you having burning sensation in urine or increased frequency of Urine?
Do you have any history of unprotected sex?

I would advise you for a battery of investigation like CBC, ESR , liver function test and blood sugar, VDRL test , urine culture and sensitivity test.

You may require a course of antibiotics like Amoxyclav or Norfloxacin group of drugs under medical supervision.

Meanwhile have lots of fluids orally which will help by flushing off the urogenital tract and clears the mild degree of infection.
Wash it with antiseptic soap or solution and keep it clean and moisturised by applying antibacterial ointment like mupirocin or soframycin.
Maintain good hygiene.

Please write back to me with these details I have asked for, so that I will be able to tell you more precisely.
Best wishes

Hello. I am a 16 year old girl, and I got my belly button pierced about a month ago. A few days ago, I formed a red, itchy rash and bumps inside and around my navel and piercing. I went to the doctor, and he said it was because I was allergic to the metal. I have since taken the ring out, and I was wondering if it could be something else. I don t think it was an allergic reaction to the metal, because my body didn t react until about a month later. Also, the rash spread to my neck and face. Any idea of what this could possibly be?
