Yellowing of the whites of the eyes might be due to jaundice; this is a condition that occurs when bilirubin builds up in our blood. It can be caused by several things. You’re posting in a hepatitis c forum; do you have reason to believe you have liver disease?

If you are turning yellow, you are right to be concerned. Have you explained to your doctor that you have this condition?

If you have, and he still ignores it, you need to find another doctor. I don't know if liver issues are the ONLY thing that causes jaundice, but turning yellow is certainly not normal, and must be investigated.
