Hello Akashkumar.
Welcome to healthcare magic.
Jaundice is yellowing of eyes , skin, urine etc. due to liver affected by infection also called as viral hepatitis.
Early symptoms are fever, weakness, nausea, vomiting, pain in abdomen , decreased appetite etc.
Later on there may be yellow skin , eyes urine and swelling of liver, seen as abdominal distended.
Blood test is liver function tests mainly sgot ,sgpt ,bilirubin. viral markers for hepatitis virus may be done.
Thank you
