You have a belly-button infection.  See your doctor for antibiotics and topical ointment. - Blu

I agree with Blu.  My neighbor actually had to have a surgery on her navel, so do take it seriously enough to see your doc.

Thanks.  I applied Bacitracin Zinc Ointment with a cotton swab for 2 days-no pain and/or odor since.
