Our expert says:
Navels are like little dustbins on your tummy and tend to collect lots of rubbish - from dead clothing fluff to dead skin cells.
In some cases an infection may lead to the smellyness, but most often it's just some of the sediment in there thats growing old :)
Use a good antibacterial soap or even dettol/savlon when cleaning the navel.
