if u have jaundice,clinically u can say that by examining your skin nails and should be confirmed by serum bilirubin levels...causes are many.but commonly it must be due to increased red cell destruction(malaria,hemolytic disesa)or liver problems(decompensated liver dis)..or any obstruction in your bile tract(gall stones)..jaundice is a symptom for many serious diseases..once your blood report comes and depending upon the type of bilirubin that is raised we can arrive at a conclusion...please consult your nearby physician and get ur blood reports done...
probable etiology:
fever -suspect infectious origin.malaria etc
intermittent pain in right abdomen:liver disea,gall stones etc
clay colour stools:biliary tract obstruction(gall stones etc)
alcoholic:liver patholgy
