My belly buttun in all truth smell like toxic watse with a hint of cheese it,s quite wet in their too like the bottom of a brie container 3 days after opening left in bright sunlight. Is this bacteria? because anything i use to try and rid my button of this humm fails. i wash it everyday but it still could turn elephant sealsto the use of perfume. do you have any suggestions.

clean your belly button, Get q-tips and then dip in a water or hydrogen peroxide. Then you gently, clean it. Just be gentle. If your belly button smells, it means that it has dirt or dirty, just try to clean, but dont overclean your belly button cause it might get sore. If it still doesnt work, maybe you have a yeast infection, which you need to consult the doctor. you can also use some home remedies for it which can be found here: http://www.otan.us/webfarm/emailproject/yeast.htm http://www.medhelp.org/forums/WomensHealth/messages/1720.html

i total agree i clean mine with peroxide atleast 3 times a week. i also not if the button of your jeans lies right at your belly button it can cause a smell.

It sounds as if you might be growing yeast or fungus in your belly button. You should pay careful attention when you shower or bathe, and you can clean it with a gentle cleanser, or baby oil.

Your belly button smells because bacteria is growing inside it.

Dirt and bacteria love it in there! I cleanse mine with a mild soap and warm water. Don't use anything too harsh, because if you get a rash in your belly button it will swell and itch like crazy! :)

Talk to your doctor. Maybe your belly button is so deep that it stays wet after a shower. After you bathe and wash your belly button out, take a dry q-tip and make sure to dry it out. After you have done so, in a couple hours time check to see how wet it is again. You may have over active sweat glands, or maybe a more serious problem. I'd talk to my doctor if I were you. The only problem with my belly button is that the skin is dry. I hope you figure out what is wrong.

LOL this was actually posted by my husband some time ago. I actually have found a solution this now. Every morning and night I spray deodorant in my belly button if I don't do that then it smells. I found out it smelt from my husband who smelt it one day and told me how gross it was, lol!
