Question: Stinky Belly Button
|jeseymc - Wed Jan 02, 2008 9:01 pm||
How can I get rid of the odor from my belly button? Is it a cause for concern?

Often, odor from the belly button indicates that there is a skin infection occuring there. I would recommend you see your doctor since often these will need an antibiotic to clear up.
