Answer: Hi dear
Omphalitis is most commonly caused by bacteria...
In most cases, the umbilical cord stump dries up and falls off the newborn within the first few weeks of life. But sometimes an infection can develop.
This may cause the area around the cord to swell and become inflamed, red, or tender.
There may be cloudy, discolored, or bad-smelling discharge from the cord..
To treat an infection. Keep the skin of your belly button clean and dry..
Please have patience and check with baby doctor..he will provide u s medicine and baby will b fine
