Yellow crust on belly button, flaky skin layer. Causes and treatment?

Hi I had a question about a problem I have been experiencing in the area of my belly button. My belly button for the last year or so has been developing this yellowish crust on a consistent basis which I end up yanking out of that area a multiple times a week. In addition there is a scaly/flaky skin layer that I pull out as well. I often seem to find belly button lint in there sometimes. I am freaking out what could this be??
