Taking paracetamol can cause a number of side effects, including skin discoloration, the UK National Health Service informed.

Paracetamol is a widely used medication that helps reduce pain and bring down fever, but some people who take it may experience side effects. For example, the skin on a person's fingers and lips may change to a bluish tint if the drug is used regularly.

According to experts, you should never overdose on this medication, even if you feel very bad.

Other side effects of paracetamol include diarrhea, increased sweating, loss of appetite, and nausea or vomiting. All of these problems may be accompanied by abdominal pain, cramping, or swelling in the upper abdomen. If these symptoms occur, you should seek immediate medical attention.
