I haven't been spending as much time with my boyfriends dad(who has dementia) lately, as I have been very busy. Yesterday was the first time in a couple weeks where I was very up close to his face. I noticed that his face has a few spots of yellowish tint. his last doctor's visit was a month ago... I'm wondering if this is something we need to bring to the doctors attention? Or is this just a normal symptom of old age?

Check the whites of his eyes, are they yellowish also? It could be a condition called jaundice.

It could be either liver issues or an old fall injury where the skin turns from black/blue then to yellow while it is healing. Have him see his primary doctor to be on the safe side.

Yellowing skin is a sign of liver failure. See the MD ASAP
