What does jaunidice look like?

I have had abdominal pain but its ok at the moment, it comes and goes.

No change in urine or stool colour

I am feeling exhausted. Slight back pain, but I know what that is
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Jaundice is yellowing of the skin or the whites of the eyes. What I'm getting at is I'm most worried about the overdose of the paracetamol.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No Jaundice

can't remember how many paracetamol I swollowed approx 9 - 12 paracetamol (they were called Panadol} 500mg per tab
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sorry for the delay--computer glitch. For now I suggest plenty of juices and fluids to speed up the detox process. You're over the worst part for now. There is nothing specific as in supplements to cleanse these medications from your system. The paracetamol could have caused liver failure, but it doesn't appear that that's the case with you. Of course, if anything happens that worries you, you do need to see a doctor about this.
