My baby is 2 months old, and has been oozing out of his belly button for a little over a week now.If you pull his belly down, it looks like another little round lump underneath his belly button. At his 2 month check on Friday the DR said he has a granuloma and put silver nitrate on it. She also took his blood and urine samples as he has been crying a lot more and not acting himself lately. We went back today and found out he has a UTI. She said this is very rare, but not uncommon, however now she thinks the problem with the belly button may be connected to why he would have a UTI. She said it's a rare condition she's never actually seen, and another DR she was speaking with has only seen it once. We have to go have an ultrasound tomorrow, and go see a urologist next week to possibly have a surgery. I'm freaking out. Has anyone heard of this before? The condition is called Persistent Urachus.
