"junior" for childish?

No, "junior" just means not as tenured, which is why it's used without any kind of negative connotation in job titles, like "junior project manager." You wouldn't use "junior" to as a negative commentary.

On the other hand, "juvenile" is a negative assessment of someone's behavior. Our junior project managers may act juvenile, but hopefully not.

The medical clue reads backward and is a little confusing - sounds like the answer you're asking for is a symptom of the diagnosis, yellowed skin. Could maybe say something like, "Yellow skin is a medical symptom of [insert correct answer here]." I get what it says as currently written, but it's awkward.
