What causes bleeding and pain in the navel?

My belly button has been bleeding, has a scab, small lump present and it is becoming painful. I have been cleaning it with soap and water and tonight will try peroxide. Is there something better to clean it with and should I be concerned and see a doctor?

cleaning with povidone iodine also good,
Dont use soap now, its an irritant.

if more problem you have to take oral antibiotic also.
Better consult with a physician.
