Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you should see a doctor about this
you need an abdominal ultrasound to look below the skin to look for cysts or abscesses or infections which could be causing your discharge from your belly button
some patients can have a patent urachus causing fluid coming out
here is an article about fluid discharge
some patients need surgery to repair this
but you have to see a doctor to get this evaluated
do you have a doctor who can examine your belly button and perform an abdominal ultrasound?
