Obviously it's umbilical granuloma need cauterisation with freshly prepared silver nitrate solution and most of the time responds to common salt application. CBC may be advised to rule out immunodeficiency.
small umbilical granulomas usually respond to silver nitrate application that persist after silver nitrate treatment require surgical excision.
even if it's umbilical granuloma, possibility of patent vitellointestinal duct and patent urachus should b kept in mind.
Mostly Granuloma , copper sulphate painting should help to cauterise chemically .
