What Is Jaundice?
- Jaundice shows up in babies as a yellowish tinge to the skin and eyes.
- Neonatal Jaundice is very common in newborn babies – about six out of 10 newborns have jaundice to varying degrees.
- Jaundice is caused by an excess of a chemical called bilirubin.
- Most jaundice is ‘physiological jaundice.
- Physiological jaundice will resolve by itself once the baby’s liver is functioning at full speed.
- In babies where jaundice levels are very high in the days after birth, treatment using blue lights (phototherapy) may be required.
- Other less common causes of jaundice include blood group differences between mother and baby, haemolytic anaemia, hepatitis and galactosaemia.
Treatment for common conditions that cause jaundice may include:
- physiological jaundice – often no treatment required, occasionally phototherapy is needed
- breastmilk jaundice – breastfeeding should be continued. Phototherapy is occasionally required in the first few days and typically no treatment is required after that
- blood group differences – the antibodies made by the mother can remain active in the baby’s system for a few weeks. A longer course of phototherapy is sometimes required.
Treatments for rare conditions that cause jaundice may include:
- haemolytic anaemia – treatment depends on the cause. For example, the treatment for haemolytic anaemia caused by malaria infection includes anti-malarial medications
- neonatal hepatitis – there is no specific medical treatment. Options may include vitamin and mineral supplements, or medication to improve the flow of bilirubin through the bile ducts
- galactosaemia – the principal treatment is to make sure the baby’s diet contains no galactose or lactose (another milk sugar). Typically, this means stopping breastfeeding and using special formulas
- biliary atresia – treatment involves surgery to connect a section of the liver to the gut (small intestine) to allow the bilirubin and other products to drain effectively.
