This has been in my 3yr olds tummy button as long as I can remember. Obviously he won't let me near it and I'm amazed he stayed still long enough to take a picture. What is it? Feels hard but can't get any purchase on it to try and get it out.

Dead skin cells and fluff probably .

Is it wrong that I would calpol my child just to get near this if he was mine grin

Not helpful I know but that looks like a little grumpy pixie! grin

Kids belly buttons are often pretty full of sweat and dirt, could you swipe round it with a cotton bud and some aqueous cream?

could you suction it out with a calpol syringe or something??

I got these as a child. If I got them out they would be sore and would bleed. I'd leave it alone.

I have something that looks like that. I'd never noticed it before until my belly button turned inside out with pregnancy. Mines actually a skin tag and bleeds like buggery if picked.

I like your nail varnish too. Must copy that for the festive season. Sorry, as regards the question, don't know

Oooh lots of posts. I'll have a google of belly button stone, will sit on my hands and not prod it then. It's clearly not red or infected so will try to-- have a poke once he's asleep-- forget about it

Nail varnish is Rimmel 60second one. Cheap and quick wink

I had my belly button pierced many moons ago and I still get a shard of scab out of It every few weeks - joy!

I have an almost 20 year old belly button piercing that has never been squeezed.

Hoping one day I'l squeeze it and go down two jeans sizes.

Do not google umbilical stone.

I've bleached my brain twice and the images are still there.
