Yellow hands and feets
Created by Updated on Jun 09, 2015
Hi My Son is 18 mths and have a yellow tint on his hands and feets and also some other parts of the body like his Stomach. Eyes is not yellow. He is off brest feed and is on formula milk around 5-6 oz a day. He is on soft food like Khichedi with vegitables , Naachni , Oats, Cereals , Dalia etc. One thing(not sure if thats unusual) observed is thats he drinks lot of water around 7-8 oz in an hr. Though the weather was a bit sultry and humid some days back but since last 3-4 days its cloudy and plesent still the water intake is the same . Just a bit worried if this is normal

Hi Ira , It's probably from eating lots of carrots, sweet potatoes. My baby also turned orangey, yellow and that's what it was from. It was especially noticeable in the diaper area but a little yellow all over. To be on a safer side,Consult this issue with the doctor.

Hi Geetika I did read abt the excess intake of carrots and sweet potatoes on google,It develops when you consume excessive amounts of beta carotene rich food, such as carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, oranges and spinach, but somehow when i analyse his sweetpotato intake is zero as of since last 6-7 mths. Only thing from the list that he does take is carrot but thats just a small piece in his khichdi. Will try to stop that for few days and observe. Thanks for your inputs yaar

Hi Arundhati, As per Dr If you consume lots of carrot juice, yellow-orange vegetables or beta-carotene supplements, your skin may turn a yellow-orange shade, a condition called carotenosis. While carotenosis caused solely by drinking excessive carrot juice and eating vegetables is usually harmless.
