Usually I don't pay much attention to cleaning the navel. I found a mud lump in the navel some time ago. Recently, I found a little white pus around the mud lump. What's the situation and how to deal with it
It is not necessary to worry about the formation of some mud patches in the belly button before it is closed. Therefore, it may not be effective for the belly button to form some mud patches after it is closed.
This is omphalitis. The navel is formed by the atrophy of the human umbilical cord after birth. There is no muscle and fat here, so it is a concave Wrinkled tissue. It is easy to accumulate skin broken nitrate and skin dirt, which is easy to be infected and inflamed for a long time. Therefore, it is recommended to clean the umbilicus at the same time after bathing. Once inflamed, it can be cleaned and disinfected with hydrogen peroxide and complex iodine.
In this case, periumbilical infection is still called omphalitis. In case of omphalitis, iodophor is used to disinfect it every day. Don't scratch it, avoid getting wet, don't take a bath with water, and then take some anti-inflammatory drugs, such as amoxicillin, potassium clavulanate or penicillin
