  • I'd go. Something is wrong with the liver and the body can get pretty toxic pretty fast.

  • Yes, jaundice is a sign of liver failure, which can go downhill very fast.

  • That wouldn't even be a second thought! My father in law died of liver failure and he was so jaundiced. The whites of his eyes were yellow.

  • Yes, babies get it because their livers are not at 100% functionality yet... but in an adult it means something is wrong with your liver.... I say "please go to the ER!"
