Does your child / grandchild have any other signs?

The only thing my grandchild shows is a sudden light blue color bellow his nose, that dessapearing fast. No lip or mouth cyanosis, nothing else. Thank you. Claudia Ríos.

Thank you.

If he has no trouble breathing and has normal energy level, I do not think he has a medical problem. If you are worried, then he should be checked in person by is doctor.
