Customer: replied 7 years ago.
my belly button is sore when i touch it. for a few weeks off and on. no other symptoms
Expert:  Dr.Saurabh Joshi replied 7 years ago.
This belly button pain can be caused by any intra-abdominal pathology like a collitis / gastroenteritis / appendcitis.
You need to have this examined by a doctor and have an Ultrasound of your Abdomen and Pelvis to look for a cause of this tenderness so that it can be treated accordingly.
