The area around my belly button is tender to the touch. It is not a sharp pain, rather when I touch the area or apply a bit of pressure it is sore.

Hi, How are you? If there was no previous trauma to this area, this could be an infection. Symptoms of infection include: discharge, pain and swelling. If it persists, have this evaluated by your doctor for proper management. Antibiotics may be indicated. Take care and best regards.
