thanks. in addition, there is yellow liquid coming out from my belly button and smell bad.

It sounds like the wound is infected. I would suggest clean it with hydrogen peroxide and apply baitracin ointment over it. If it does not get better n few days then see your doctor as you might need oral antibiotics.cold compresses can help relieving the itch.

can i take shower everyday? and my doctor told me that it did not look like infected.

Yes,you can take shower every day and if your doctor examined and ruled out infection then nothing to worry about.
