Hello, My child is 8 months old today I found a rash on his navel, red around the outside to the inside. My child is more fussy than usual and because Sunday is difficult to find a doctor who practices what can I do for the first treatment before Monday I can see a doctor? Thank you for your attention, SalamIrianti

Hello Irianti87,


Redness in the baby's belly button can be caused by an infection. Navel infections are most often caused by bacteria or fungi. Symptoms that can appear are:

Redness in the navel and skin around the navel
Babies are fussy, especially when the navel is touched / pressed
Navel looks wet or secretes fluid like pus
The odor from the navel

The diagnosis is usually based on clinical symptoms and physical examination. Treatment will adjust from a possible cause of bacteria or fungi. Some other causes besides infection can also cause reddish complaints on the navel of the baby, so you should still consult a doctor to find out the exact cause. Try to keep the belly button dry, do not apply powder or anything that is difficult to clean on the navel, soothe the baby when fussy giving breast milk as usual, compress with cold / warm water. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
