Earlier this year I was diagnosed with what was said to be several stomach ulcers, esphogitis, and a hinatel hernia. Prior to the treatment/medications from my doctor, I often/always had a bad smelling gooey and crusty belly button. While I was being treated my belly button went back to non-crusty and non-gooey NORMAL! Well I havent had insurance in about 3 months and havent been back to my dr or on medication etc. Within the last week the gooey yucky belly button is back. I have googled this but everything I find says its just sweaty or dirty etc. Is that true and just coincidental that it only happens when Im not on treatment? Or is it something bigger and should I be concerned? Again, it only occurs when Im not under treatment for my stomach ulcers etc.
