Cause The Baby’s Eyes Are Slightly Yellow?
Hello. I want to ask about my child’s eyes. My son’s eyes, who haven’t been born a week yet, are not bright white but a little yellow. Even though every morning I dry my child around 15-20 minutes. Is it a “sign of jaundice or not? Is it dangerous for my child? And how can I treat it? Please help
Babies who experience yellow eyes need further examination, it is also necessary to observe whether there are other body parts that are also yellowish. Usually there can be jaundice in babies 24 hours after the baby is born until about 1 week has just disappeared, in this condition yellow or what is often called jaundice may still be a physiological condition, but if the jaundice appears from birth or lasts more than a week or appearing after a week of age need to be considered whether there are certain abnormal conditions that may include:
Lack of breast milk intake Viral or bacterial infections of the umbilical cord bile disorders, liver damage, baby's red blood cell disorders. or certain infections that require special treatment. Usually several examinations are required in addition to direct physical examination such as blood tests, liver function tests and bilirubin or other necessary tests.
Here are the things you need to pay attention to:
keep breastfeeding according to the baby's needs pay attention to whether the baby's body is also experiencing some yellow, keep the baby's body clean, care for the baby's umbilical cord to keep it dry and not damp and not smell bad by frequently changing the gauze bandages on the umbilical cord, check the following further conditions You read yellow baby, phototherapy
