Bump inside belly button, clear fluid oozing and sharp pain. What is the cure?

Hello,



Ive had a midsized bump inside of my bellybutton for about 2 weeks now. The first week it burst and went down in size and has stayed the same size since. It leaked clear fluid and from inside my bellybutton it still seems to be leaking and it has a metal smell to it, also on occasion I will get a sharp pain that seems to shoot towrds my stomach from the site, please help?!

thanks, Amy G

Hi Amy,

The symptoms you are having might be related to abscess of the bellybutton or bellybutton hernia which has turned infected.

I suggest to consult a surgeon as soon as possible and to do the abdominal ultrasound for further evaluation.

Hope it helped!
