The Baby Has Only 11 Days Of Yellow Eyes?
want to ask what is the cause of baby’s yellow eyes and how to cure them. What are yellow eyes in babies of dangerous diseases
Hello Putra, thank you for asking.
Yellow in newborns is often found. Newborns, especially premature babies, do not yet have a perfect metabolism. Yellow color on baby's skin and eyes is caused by high levels of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is a product of the destruction of old red blood cells. Bilirubin is then processed in the liver and passed into the gallbladder. Bilirubin along with bile sap will enter the digestive tract and excreted with feces (feces). In newborns, liver cell work is not optimal, so a lot of bilirubin is collected in the blood and gives a yellow color.
Some of the causes of yellow in infants are:
Babies do not drink enough milk or milk.
Babies are not exposed to enough sunlight in the morning.
Disorders of the liver or gallbladder.
Rhesus mismatch between mother and baby.
Infection in infants.
and many other reasons. Generally yellow (jaundice) is not dangerous and can disappear by itself in 1-2 weeks. However, if the baby looks increasingly yellow and has lasted more than 2-3 weeks, you should immediately take the baby to the pediatrician. The doctor will do a blood sample check to assess bilirubin levels. Too high levels of bilirubin can cause brain damage. That is why if deemed necessary the doctor will advise the baby to get UV radiation for several days in the intensive care room.
You can accelerate the disappearance of these yellow complaints by making sure the baby gets enough milk and gets enough morning sun. For mothers, avoid drinking herbal or other herbal ingredients, because sometimes it can affect the composition of breast milk.
Thus the information from me, I hope you get the benefit. Regards.
