rust around drain in tub

I have a stand alone tub with rust around the drain in the bottom of the tub. The drain uses a metal plug to hold water in. Can I repair the rust without removing the drain with a tub repair kit?
I was told that I might have to replace the tub.

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

A cast iron tub needs to be professionally re-surfaced. This is not a DIY job, and is not inexpensive.
The drain would have to be removed to clean away ALL rust, if you tried some kind of temporary paint job.
Good Luck!
