I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain in case if you have recurring infection in the belly button leading to brownish discharge you need to take a proper antibiotic treatment and you cannot rely only on natural treatment..
You should take a course of antibiotics like Dextromethorphan and Trimethoprim..
You should clean the area with antiseptic solution and apply triple antibiotic ointment and steroid ointment over it..
You can also put gentle pressure over the area to drain off the infectious fluid..
Keep the area clean and free of moisture..
Wear loose fitting and preferably cotton clothes..
Avoid touching the area repeatedly with bare hands to prevent spread of infection..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
