Smelly Belly Button
Ok, this may sound disgusting. At least I think it is. I am a very hygienic person, neat on myself, and very clean. I have a problem with a smelly belly button. I clean it with soap and rinse it with clean water, but the problem persists. This has been going on for some time now. I had my hub take a look to see if there was redness, or something else inside, but he could see nothing. It is not painful either. This is becoming very distressing to me, as I can sometimes smell it. I have looked in my medical book, but could find nothing. Please advise me as to what could cause this smell.

Angel, before we go any further, does your husband smell it too or is it just you? Let me know as a new question and we’ll take it from there. Good luck.
