Hi,

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?

Thank you.

Dear Gnieraj,

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.
