I have a sort of a cut or scab in my belly button. I put hydrogen peroxide on it almost every night. It’s healing but REALLY slowly. Before the scab formed there was “crust” in the naval. I don’t know if I should waste my time going to the doctor of it’s already on its healing stage.

confused tweenIf your cut or scab is from a piercing or other trauma to the area, then hydrogen peroxide can help keep the cut clean. However, if you’ve had the cut/scab for more than a week, you should see your health care provider to make sure it is not an infection or skin condition such as psoriasis or eczema.
