Hey. I have yet another problem with my body, except this one is kind of weird.

My belly button seems pretty infected- and yet, it's not pierced. It hasn't been pierced for about 2 years now. Anyway, I've been putting peroxide on it, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better, really. I'm also having stomach aches, more-so around the belly button area. Just a few minutes ago, my stomach made this loud "pop" sound... could be some sort gas or acid bubble, but then again, I don't know. Could the infection of my belly button be causing the stomach aches?

Thanks very much for your time.

Having an infection somewhere where you don't have an external wound/piercing that could become infected? I'd really suggest you go see a doctor about this.

It could be the stomach aches and this are related, it could be the stomach aches are just gas or indigestion troubles, we really can't know. But I'd go get it checked out as soon as you can.

(Also? Chill on the peroxide - soap and water is good, bactine won't hurt if you have it, neosporin or something similar is fine as well, but peroxide isn't the friendliest stuff to healthy cells.)
