Best answer
The child may have interventricular septal defect. In such a case a hole is present in the septum that separates the two ventricles. As a result there is mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood and the heart needs to work harder to function properly. In such instances the child shows symptoms of shortness of breath on exertion and the skin, fingernails and lips show a bluish tint.
