Bacterial Infections causing smelly discharge from belly button

 Unclean, unwashed belly buttons can be extremely susceptible to bacterial infections. A smelly belly button excreting a pus-like substance is, most often, associated with a bacterial infection. Sweat, soap and other substances deposited in the navel cavity can aid bacterial growth. Bacterial discharge may be brown or yellow in color and may cause pain and swelling.
Nowadays, belly button piercings have become a style statement. A pierced navel may look stylish but due to frequent bleeding it surely invites many infection-causing pathogens. The discharge of yellowish-green fluid from a pierced belly button is called sepsis-septicemia
