Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
Belly button infection termed as umbilicus infection is likely possibility. You may apply Mupirocin ointment twice a day, which is likely to help eradicate it.
Having said that; you should also get an ultrasound and a CT scan to rule out a tumor underneath it or an hernia which may cause its protrusion and make it tender.
Umbilical hernia in your age group are not uncommon and a minor surgery would take care of it.
It is privilege assisting you.
