Question
my son is 5 weeks old and has a very black tounge from the grip water and he is more fussy then usual. He is full of gas but does not have # 2 often unless he is given prune juice. What should I do for both these issues.

Thanks

Pigmentation of tongue

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
All the symptoms mentioned by you are probably due to some systemic disease. The tongue discoloration can also be due to some cause not related to tongue.
My advise is you should get the child examined by a paediatrician.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards
