Pricked the area?
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I don’t want a phone call just this messenger
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 16 days ago.

There is nothing to worry about

You should apply pressure with cotton on it to stop the bleeding

After it stop then you can use an antiseptic to keep the area clean

Only if it continue to recur then you may need to cauterize the bleeding vessel

Please do let me know if you have any other question

It’s not a cut. The blood has just started coming out of my belly button and is sore
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 16 days ago.

Yes I know but you have to apply antiseptic in the hole of the nevus

This will help

Mostly it is an infection deep down

Please do let me know if you have any other question

If applying antiseptic daily does not work in next couple of days then you may need an antibiotic
