What is this spot next to my navel? Liver spot or something else?

A couple of years ago I noticed a brownish spot appeared next to my belly button. A friend told me it was probably just an age spot / liver mark (although I am 20). Yesterday, I noticed it was flaking off and itchy. Today, it looks like this. Reddish but white in the middle. I'm really concerned and have been anxious over this since last night. Does anyone know what this could be?? (The redness around my navel has been there for a while too.)

    To ease your mind, I would get it checked out by your doctor.  It's probably nothing, but you'd feel better knowing exactly what it isn't.

    P.S.  Especially if you've had it for a few years -  a dermatologist could certainly assess it and rule out anything serious.

    I'm not a doctor, but your skin reflects your inner health. You could take dandelion tincture to see if it helps clean out your liver. The color may disappear. Drink lots of fluids. Dandelion tea is bitter, but it cleans you. You can pick them from you own yard as long as there is no chemical spray!  The root is more potent. You can make your own tincture.

    If you use homeopathy, dandelion is taraxacum. Then, you don't have to deal with the flavor! I would use taraxacum 200x every other day or 30x three times a day.
