    Looks like she has Jaundice.  It could be a blockage from gallbladder stones.  Recommend you take her to the doctor quickly.  My father had the same issue at around that age.  He was addmitted to surgery and his gallbladder was taken out.  He was fine after that.

    Hi, Faran, you need to take your grandmother to see a gastroenterologist, who is a specialist, right away. I think this is very serious!  The doctor should have referred you to one.  Please let us know how she does, and best of luck to you both.
