Symptoms of Jaundice

Jaundice is yellow pigmentation of the body due to high level of bilirubin pigment. Under normal circumstances, the liver excretes the yellow pigment through the feces. However, when the liver has infection, or gets some injury, it fails to do its designated function. So, the yellow pigment accumulates in various organs, thus giving a yellowish appearance.


The primary symptoms of Jaundice include:

  • Yellow tinge to the skin and whites of the eyes

  • Itchiness of skin

  • Fatigue

  • Abdominal pain

  • Fever

  • Vomiting

  • Exceptionally yellow stool

  • Darker urine

  • Loss of weight

This may be caused due to hepatitis or obstructed bile duct. Treatment includes identifying the underlying cause and the subsequent course to rectify the cause.
