    OH yeah...ER or wherever she can be seen immediately!! My son had a liver disease and you MUST NOT wait when your child is jaundiced. We went through H*ll with him and we had early intervention.

    Just as an aside, red foods such as tomatos can cause orange skin also.

    I hope she is O.K.

    I hope it is nothing too! However having two children as well, you can never be too cautious...I have taken mine to the ER with vomiting, diarrhea,^ temp x's 3 days(it was a weekend) nothing but just a virus..:imbar ..but I felt much better and I didn't care....if I had not gone and it was something else I could never live with it was worth it...but then there was the time my son insisted he broke his tibia in soccer practice...there was only minimal redness ..NO real edema only slightly raised area....well, I told him to suck it up, by the next day when he refused to walk on it I thought I'll just take him to get an x-ray and that will prove to him that it is ok to walk on it...the Dr. walks in with x-ray in hand saying yep he' got a buckle fx. We need to cast it for 4 wks my son said "SEE I TOLD YOU IT WAS BROKE"!!! Jeeesh, I thought HRS was going to swoop in and take me long story short...go,go,go,go...and please let us know

    One question, what is the innoculation schedule like in Canada? Are all infants given A & B vaccines by age of two?

    I really hope this little one is ok. I don't think I would have waited quite so long to have her seen. Jaundice isn't something to mess around with.
    Let me very clear to those that pm'd me about what comments I made on this thread. I didnt mean anything, I held my comments... For the simple reason on what I would have said would have been insulting to the thread owner.. But since your so inclined to know here it goes. I would not have waited to see the responses of anyone on here before I took action for my child, I realize and believe that there are many here with a huge knowledge base but again I wouldnt have waited for an opinion. I would have gone and then possibly returned and then posted something about it, but I would not delay in the possible treatment.
    This is not posted to insult the thread owner in anyway shape or form. I do hope your child is ok and all is just a simple explanation of why your child is orange. Like I said I do not have children but I also will state my mind and hold my opinion if someone will possibly get the wrong impression.Which is what occured.

    You're absolutely right, and I think a lot of us feel the same way. If the health of my child was at risk, I would not have waited for a bunch of faceless opinions, no matter how knowledgeable they might have been.
