Question: dark yellow skin

My aunt came over today and her skin is really yellow, i walked her outside when she was leaving and it was even worse in the sun she looked almost green it was so bad. She seems weak, don't really have any idea what this could be. she doesent either. any help appreciated

I would strongly recommend your aunt be evaluated. I would recommend that she have her liver enzymes and bilirubin level tested.
Elevated bilirubin levels can cause bilirubin to deposit in the skin giving the yellow/green color.
