General Surgeon 's  Response
From the clinical symptoms you have described, it is a umbilical sinus which in this age group usually occur due to poor hygiene in the local area or tuft of stiff body hairs collect in the umbilicus and form what is called as umbilical sinus or weeping umbilicus.Your mother needs to get examined by a General surgeon doctor for proper management of the condition.Initially she may may be given antibiotics and if the condition does not settles than surgery would help and cure her condition.

General & Family Physician Dr. Prahlad S. Patki's  Response
Your mother needs to get examined by your doctor to rule out gastrointestinal infections like amebiasis or bacterial infection. Stool examination will help. Accordingly your doctor will prescribe drugs like Metronidazole and or Ofloxacin. Plenty of water inateke and eating hygenic food, practicing good hand hygeine are essential.
