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.

Question: Today morning I found a off white/grey little smelly discharge is it normal??
Answer: Hello dear, vaginal discharge is normal during pregnancy. It could be white, green or yellow colour, because of hormonal changes during pregnancy. If the vaginal discharge comes with strong smelling, and/or accompanied by redness or itching, you may have a vaginal infection. Try to clean and dry inner area, use panty if getting more discharge, Change panty 2 times in a day. Apply Yogurt or garlic paste or apple cider vinegar and rub it over the external parts of the vagina and rinse it. Eat a cup of yogurt a day will also help. Repeat the treatment for a week or until the fluids become normal. If don't feel comfortable, consult your gyno.

Answer: Hello! It is absolutely normal. Generally, doctors give a antibacterial powder that needs to be applied on it till the area dries up and becomes normal. If you already have that you can use it or consult the paediatrician for it.
