It seems that you mau be having omphalitis...infection of umbilicus leading to abscess.

Consult dermatologist for comlete examination and diagnosis.

If there is abscess, incision and drainage may be done.

Strong antibiotics with anti inflammatory drugs may taken.

Apply antibiotic cream.

For diarrhea, consult physician.

Anti diarrheal drug like lomotil may taken. If there is dehydration, saline pint may be taken in hospital.

I hope you got my answer.
