    Hi timli2r

    You probably have a fungal infection inside your bbutton. Your bb has to be kept clean and properly dried after bathing and showering. Fungus thrive in warm and wet environments. You need to get some anti-fungal cream (Canasten) and apply to a dry bb every time after bathing or showering for about a week until fungal infection is gone and keep your bb clean and dry thereafter..

    Has your doctor prescribed anything for it?

    have them take a sample of the puss and send it in for labs.

    another girl had this same issue for a long while and it was staph. she was lucky they caught it because all doctors passed her off and it couldve spread to other organs
