    Default Blue fingers and lips...

    So, its not overly cold here today and DS3 is dressed in an all in one. He woke up from his nap and his lips and fingers seem a tiny bit blue tinged?

    We've already been to the dr today as he has had temps and has tonsilitis again, but what on earth would make his lips etc go a bit blue?

    He's giggling and playing with his brother so he doesn't seem affected...

    That seems a little worrying? That sounds like he is cyanosed. Does he still have it? I would call Health Direct.

    Thanks, I ended up calling 13health who advised me to take him to the dr, I cant leave the house yet as im waiting for my son to get dropped home from school, so I called the dr and she said to try some ventolin and the colour is back to normal now and he is no longer wheezing.

    Far out, kids sure know how to stress their parents!

    Oh yes they do! I was worried for you just reading about it. Good to hear he's recovered but that's def not a good sign (blue lips, fingers) so you did the right thing

    Thanks! He had bronchiolitis recently and I read that can cause it, I'm heading down to the dr when DS1 gets home just in case but dr was confident that the ventolin was all that was needed.
