Skin yellowing: Skin yellowing can occur in hepatitis (inflammation of the liver which may be due to viruses, autoimmune diseases, medications, and other), low thyroid function, certain types of anemia and a number of other conditions. Bags under eyes can occur in a number of conditions as well. Please see your doctor as soon as possible for an evaluation and blood work. This needs a diagnosis as soon as possible.
