Depends on condition: Skin color in infants reflects circulation, oxygenation and hemoglobin saturation. Color is best observed when an infant is quiet. Red lobster like skin is a sign of plethora-due to high hematocrit concentration (high red blood cells vs volume of blood) and blood flow. Purple lips can be a sign of cyanosis-low oxygen saturation in the blood stream if your baby is in any distress/ill appearing. ...Read more

What does it mean if you bottom lip is swollen and it starts turning purple? Its been happen since friday and still going now iv'e been waking up with a swollen for almost a week now..
Did you suffer any trauma to your lip? If so you likely have a hematoma (collection of blood) under the lip. This will take time to dissipate. You can try cool compresses/ice to your lip a few times a day and try an anti-inflammatory medication like advil (ibuprofen) to reduce the pain and inflammation. If you do not notice an improvement over the next several days see your doctor.
All the best. ...Read more

Try tylenol, (acetaminophen) get on acid reducer, Prilosec otc if can afford. Gd luc. ...Read more
