Expert Answer:

Jaundice in itself is not communicable and poses no risk of infection. Jaundice is a condition which leads to deposition of a yellowish pigment in the skin and the eyes due to high levels of bilirubin in the blood. In most of the cases, jaundice is indicative of some liver related problem. Jaundice is not communicable but the cause of jaundice could be a disease that may be communicable sometimes.
