YES: Blue is sometimes from co2 when you have pulmonary disease causing an increase in carbon dioxide.Other reasons for blue color is co2 from venous stasis like varicose veins. Heart disease is another reason for turning blue. Bad genes that are inherited from parents to have a lot to contribute to this problem checkup with your doctor is important to finding the cause. This includes family history.
