dear surabhi2512
preterm baby, cyanosed at birth and fair skin tone becoming dark at such short duration- you better consult a pediatrician urgently. hope we are not dealing with some congenital heart disorder.
dermat consultation can be undertaken once the child specialist gives an all clear from his side
