What Causes Redness And Crusty On Navel?

Saturday I noticed my navel was crusty. I cleaned it out. After my shower, I looked and inside my navel was red. used alcohol on it. I ve been keeping it dry and using Neosporin. Navel is still red. Don t know if it s related but my stomach has felt nauseous for a couple of days too.
