My son is having jaundice. He is 7 days old now and his reading is 195 for the past 2 visits to the Klinik. I need to send him there again tomorrow.
How long does it take to cure without any treatment?

Your baby is probably having physiological jaundice, which is not a serious illness and it is expected to occur among some healthy newborns. Usually physiological jaundice in the newborns will resolve in 2 to 3 weeks without treatment with phototherapy.
