Baby boy, lower lips turn darker and trembles, not during or before fever, baby is not cold/hot at the time. Why this is happening?

My 16 month old baby boy has a lower lip that turns a little darker and trembles/quivers for a few seconds every now and then. Twice this past week so not sure what to think of it. It is not during or before a fever and he is not cold/hot at the time. It is usually when we are in the kitchen if that helps. Please advise. thanks! Elizabeth Gargani

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for your query.

I would not worry about the problems that you have described. I suggest that you wait and watch. Lower lips turning a little darker is insignificant. Had the lips been turning blue then there would have been a cause for concern.

As your son is 16 month old and has been on regular check-ups I presume that all his vitals are normal and his cardiovascular system (CVS) has been checked by the paediatrician. Nevertheless it is better to ask your paediatrician to recheck the CVS.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
