If there is a bulge near the belly button (and not the stomach which is slightly higher) then I would say it is a hernia, and you can Google umbilical hernia to check what it says. A lot of babies have this and it usually clears up. Sometimes a small procedure is necessary. Check with your doctor. This is where your duodenum is (a small tube going from the stomach)to your gut. It could be in spasm. If you drink (even moderately) or drink lots of coffee, tea, pop or spicy foods then stop for awhile and rest your stomach. Yogurt is a good thing to eat to soothe the stomach and duodenum. Your body is telling you something. If it doesn't go away in a week please see your doctor. There is nothing to fear and all you will get is some chalky substance to drink and an x-ray taken (as you are leaning against a slab that moves backwards and sideways so the x-ray can pick-up ulcers, etc.

Do girls get belly button lint?

Everyone does or has at one time or another assuming they have a hairy stomach. Belly button lint (lintus-belly) occurs in hairy men and women. If a woman is prone to waxing her stomach, she will get lint because her belly button became a safe haven for the lint. A woman who never has to wax her belly is less likely to have her belly button become host to lint. If a girl has a deep belly button, she will find more lint in it if she digs in it. If a girl has a shallow belly button, she will find less lint in it, but will easily be able to see it since her belly button isn't deep.

Does your belly button produce wax?

No it does not produce wax. This is actually a really stupid question. Your belly button is there because when you were in your mothers womb you had this cord called the umbilical cord and it was attached to your stomach so you could get nutrients from your mother. Well when you came out of the womb the doctors cut this cord and it now makes your belly button. So your belly button is connected to your stomach and does not have any wax producing glands.
