My sons lips have been turning purple for no reason, he seems fine, not having any problems breathing or seeming like he is in distress. His lips only do it every once in a while and it last probably 10 mins to 15 mins. If anyone knows why this would happen please let me know. Thank you.
I am struggling with this issue myself right now with my 19 month ould daughter. She acts completly fine, yet her lips turn purple, for 10 minutes up to a couple hours. I took her to the doctor today and they are sending her for test tomorrow at the hospital. They are concerned about her heart, and red blood cells.
Please don't just let this go, it CAN be major. That is why I am not taking any chances and want these tests done!!! I wish you lots of luck....
