Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
I am sorry for his symptoms.

Yellow coloration of the body can be from neonatal jaundice, but it does not appear as spot.

Red face is common in newborn.

Premature baby can develop respiratory distress.

Struggling to breath needs urgent evaluation.

Your friend should call doctor or take him to emergency.

I hope this information will be helpful.
