Good afternoon, thank you for the question
Blueness or medical terms known as cyanosis indicate decreased oxygen levels that are bound to red blood cells in the blood circulation. This condition can indicate abnormalities in the heart as a blood pumping organ or airway as a conduit of oxygen. Symptoms of cyanosis in question are bluish appearance of the lips and mucosa in the mouth, fingertips, and around the auricle.
Causes of cyanosis in infants are:
1. Airway blockage (foreign body, choking, croup disease)
2. Primary lung disease (pneumonia, bronchiolitis)
3. Congenital heart disease
Carry out further tests with a pediatrician to conduct a comprehensive evaluation. Further examination may be needed such as X-ray or echocardiography. Impaired chronic oxygen circulation which can cause growth disorders in children and even fail to grow so that the child will be easily sick, so do not hesitate to immediately take the child to the doctor.
