Its been about 2 or 3 months and I have this rash type of infection around my belly button. It is in small blotches and is not irritant or anything. I figured it was a rash but its not going away. I was wondering if tehre is anything I can do to treat this. I avoid going to the beach because I think it looks so bad and don't want to take off my shirt. I have no clue how it developed thanks.

Rash around the belly button.
My 7 year old daughter has had this same problem. She has had a rash around her belly button for a while now. I have had her to see a doctor over this several times, and they dont even know what it is. So, I started using different cremes to cure it. The only thing that I have found so far that makes it go away is an antifungal creme. But, it usually comes back again. So, I have had to treat it over and over again...So, if yoyu find out what this may be, please respond...
