The Cause Of The Body Of A Yellow Baby Only At Night?
Afternoon. Want to ask, my baby is 6 weeks old at night suddenly his body and face turn yellow and then disappear on his own. I only learned of this a few days ago. Does this also include jaundice?
Jaundice or jaundice in infants is a sign that there is an increase in bilirubin levels in the body. Bilirubin is a pigment or yellow dye found in the blood. If there is an increase in bilirubin levels in the blood, parts of the eye that are usually white will appear yellow, in addition to that the skin will also appear yellow and the baby will become limp and sleepy.
The diagnosis can be made by direct examination or blood examination. If the bilirubin level is high, the initial effort that can be done is to do phototherapy.
As for some conditions that can cause babies to turn yellow include:
the baby consumes breast milk and has a different blood type from the mother
sepsis (blood infection)
disorders of the liver or bile ducts
deficiency of certain enzymes
for that you should check with your child to the doctor to ascertain the exact cause of the complaints experienced at this time yes.
