My daughter is 13 and is complaining that it itches behind her belly button, what in the world would cause this feeling???

She thinks she should go to the doctor but I am just not sure that it is anything drastic.

It may be a sensitivity to nickel (a common component of the metal in jeans/ pants button). Does she have a rash in the area?
