Answer: hello.. dear dont worry that is normal and common.. sometimes in some babies it will take lot of time heal the navel area..As the cord is separating, and for a few days after it comes off, the umbilicus can look raw and sticky. There may be some discharge (yellow to dark brown), which may smell strange. This is normal and it doesn’t need any special treatment. All you need to do is keep the area clean with normal washing or bathing and dry it carefully. Fold the top of your baby's nappy back, so that the cord is not covered by the nappy. Do not bandage it or put any antiseptic lotions or creams on it. dont worry as per your doctor suggestions you can put that powder.. it may take some time to heal.. not to worry dear..

Answer: Dear no need to put ointment. Same issue I had with my kids. Smelly pus will come. Don't worry. Do this as suggested by my doctor. Boil half cup water. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Completely evaporate water. Then you get pure white white very fine Salt paste. Apply it on that pus area after bath.While bathing apply oil on that pus area so that water will not retain there. Within 3 days it will dry.Try and give feedback. Please mark my answer helpful if it helped you ...

Question: My baby is 15 days old and his navel just fell off two days ago but still today I can see little blood around his navel and it's smelly. Is it normal?
Answer: It takes time to get dry. U can do some home remedy for it. Take warm water and add rock salt to it n let it dissolve. Now u take a little cotton n dip it into the salt water and apply to the navel. Repeat this atleast 2 to 3 times a day. And continue daily unless n until it gets dry. By dng this it ll get dry very fast may be within 2 to 3 days. Hope it's helpful.
