Hi and welcome,
When I was jaundiced from a severe case of acute hep b, my whole body was yellow,,,,,,it is especially noticeable in the whites of the eyes. The dr does seem to be making sure you do not have hep, so thats good that he is trying to rule that out. Sometimes this is how a dr makes a dx,,,,process of elimination. Hope your doing better soon and check back in and let us know what you find out.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways,chocolate in one hand,wine in the other,body used up ,totally worn out and screaming"WOOOOHOO WHAT A RIDE!!!"
