    fear not its' most probably some fibers that were loose from the garments, or underwear that had closet contact to your skin. Take a cotton swab and some baby oil and gently clean the area !

    which could happen in case you positioned on cotton t-shirts. I remember as a newborn picking fuzz out of my father's navel while he'd lay on the floor to observe television, because of the fact his cotton t-shirts brought about it to convey at the same time there.

    It's nothing but some puff from your dresses. Wash the area and put some moisturizer there. Don't worry!

    Go to the doctor and find out. We aren't professionals here and have no idea unless someone here has had it too.

    It could be serious, and it could be some kind of infection from the inside. I really have no idea! Go to the doctor and find out!
