Navel puss and bleeding

I felt pain in my navel 2 days back and today I felt all sticky near that area. When I checked it using napkin.. I found blood and smelly puss inside my belly button !! It's not stopping at all and is continuous no matter how many times I clear it

Hi, it looks like infection of umbilicus. Send for cbc, pus culture and sensitivity. Keep that area clean. Clean with clean white cloth. You need to take antibiotics. Regular dressing is needed. Go for ultrasound abdomen pelvis.don't put water keep it dry. Consult general surgeon for further evaluation and treatment.
