I just recently noticed a pinkish discharge oozing out of my belly button which has been draining all day. My belly button is really sore and irritated especially at the top of my belly button. I am thin and exercise daily. No body piercings. I am not pregnant and my youngerst is almost 8. Just wondering what would cause this and how should I treat it? I cleaned it with a q-tip with a little rubbing alcohol and then with an antibotic ointment, is this safe? Should I see a Dr.? Please advise!!!
