Scaby Belly Button

Hi everyone
I'm looking for some advice. My LO is just over 3 weeks old and his cord fell off at 1 week old however over the last couple of days i have noticed his belly leaking and becoming scaby. When i have tried looking it up some people say it is normal overs say to get to a GP. I will try and upload picture so you can see what i mean

With my 3 year old she had a bit of a dodgy belly button after it came on and the GP prescribed a cream for her and used some stick thing. I can't remember off of the top of my head but it changed the colour of the belly button.

if it's a granuloma you can just pack it with salt for an hour or so and that should clear it right up. Both of my boys had this and it works a treat.
