Why Does My Belly Button Smell
Why does my belly button smell? Is this something you suddenly noticed whilenavel gazing? No. We'll just say someone else noticed it. In yoga or a more intimate situation? None of your business. If you recently got a belly button piercing,I'd say it was a sign of an infection. All my piercings have been there for a while. If you do not clean things out periodically,you can still get an infection.
If belly button lint could cause illness,there are lots of guys with beer bellies who would die of that long before heart attackshit. You're right that it could be belly buttonlint. Or, rather, mold growing there. It is not green, just dingy. You may need to take a long hot shower. I already do that. Otherwise, no one wouldnotice the belly button smell because of the odor from under my arms. Frankly, it may be a yeast infection.
That's usually a problem lower down on women.And guys, too, AKA jock itch. If you wash yourself in that area first andthen scrub your stomach, you could spread the yeast to that area. And we're not as thoroughcleaning out the belly button as areas where we could get diaper rash. Such a lovely image you've provided. In theory, you could have a herniated bellybutton. I thought the belly button was a hernia. No, it is a scar from your umbilical cordfalling off. People sometimes get a hernia
through that weak area in the abdominal wall,but you'd be ill before you noticed a weird smell. If it was something like that, I'd need togo to the . Go take a shower first and make sure thereis not any rotting leftover herbal essences from your body wash. If that does not solvethe problem, go see a professional.
Why is My Belly Button Brown After Pregnancy
Why is my belly button brown after pregnancy? Maybe you have not had enough time after havinga newborn to properly clean out all the lint. I have to bathe more than once a day becausethe baby peed, puked, pooped or put some other bodily fluid on me. If you just had the baby, the linea negraor dark line may not have faded yet. What causes that? Linea negra is a dark line on the abdomenand even belly button you get due to all the melanin inducing hormones during pregnancy,sometimes causing dark splotches on the face
and dark nipples too. I did not get a dark line like that. Around three quarters of women do get it,and it could lead to a dark belly button until all those hormones flush out once the babyis born. The kid is out and about, trying to roll aroundthe floor. Remember that pregnancy stretches the abdomenimmensely. That's where stretch marks come from; itis bruising of the skin from the pregnancy. It is actually scarring. Even body builderscan get stretch marks, also known as permanent
scars, from growing their muscles too fast. So you think my belly button is scarred. The skin underneath it is, yes, which couldleave it brown even after it goes back to being an innie from being an outie duringthe pregnancy. After all, if it had to pop out to make room for the baby, discolorationafterward is reasonable. What can I do about it? During pregnancy, you can try to fight fluidretention and weight gain beyond what is healthy so the body does not stretch too much. Moisturizerscan help reduce it, but you cannot reverse
it. A lot of beauty creams would say otherwise. But you're asking me what to do about it.If it is not linea negra that is going to fade by six months post partum, it is scarringthat won't. Then you think skin lightening cream won'tmake a difference. Tanning would make more of a difference. The white lines left under the folds of fleshwould make it look weirder. Try washing the skin with soap and water andmaking sure it dries thoroughly, just in case
the dark patches are due to fungal or yeastinfections of the skin. I'd never heard of that, but the baby hashad thrush. You could have skin discolorations under thebreasts, as well, where there's a yeast rash making the skin irritated and darker.The belly button is just what you see when you wonder when your body goes back to normal.
