    Hi cheryl 55795

    It sounds as if you have a fungal need to get an anti fungal cream...canesten should be ok...cleanse the area and dry it before the cream..fungal bacteria thrive in warm moist places so shower everyday dry the area and use the cream morning and evening for a week until infection is gone.....check with your doc wishes

    Thinking the same.

    And dry your button carefully well after every shower or bath, if need be with a cotton tip and hairdryer (also between toes).

    if it is a pierced belly button then it is infected and the same if not.
