I noticed my belly button was itching so I scratched


Q: I noticed my belly button was itching so I scratched it and felt a lump, I turned the light on to see its a rather decent-sized sore on the wall of my belly button and it almost looks like a blood blister, and it itches a little bit every now and then. It has no puss it's just really red and it seems if I tried to Pop it would be very painful. I do not wash my belly button frequently and it's a very deep inny-belly button. What could this be?

Symptoms:  Itchy belly button sore
