It looks like a bacterial infection.

Infection in belly button?

I would suggest applying Neosporin ointment available OTC thrice a day for a week and take Panadol, clean the area with antiseptic and if it does not improve then see a doctor for examination and oral antibiotics.

Where could the infection come from.

Visiting gp during those crisis could prove difficult

Infections can occur due to bacteria colonizing the blocked glands or small abrasions on the skin. It does not look anything serious so most likely it will improve with Neosporin available at the pharmacy without a prescription. You can clean it with alcohol swabs as well.
