I have had a pain behind my belly button for about a month. I went to the doctor when I first recognized the pain. The belly button was red and there was a discharge. The pain had started to spread down and to the right part of my stomach. A hernia was ruled out but the doctor wondered if I had an umbilical cyst. The doctor referred me to the ER. A CT scan was performed and everything was normal. I was treated for Celulitus with antibiotics.
The redness and discharge went away but the pain came back. I received another round of antibiotics. The pain came back again. I went back to the doctor who prescribed me a stronger antibiotic. The pain has come back after I completed the round. I'm following the directions on how to take these meds, I'm not drinking or using other medications with the exception of antihistamine.
Are their any holistic alternatives to antibiotics? Should I look for a specialist? If so, what kind?
