Belly button infections are more common in people with belly button piercings, ‘innie’ belly buttons.
This can often develop into liquid or pus-filled growths and cysts, which can ooze white, yellow or green discharge, appear swollen or red, itch, scab and even cause a fever or lump in your abdomen.
Newborns and children can develop urachal cysts if the tube that connects the fetal bladder to the umbilical cord isn’t sealed completely
Other cysts, such as sebaceous, epidermoid and pilar cysts can lead to belly button discharge which also gives off a horrible smell.
