In Reply to: Darrrk Circles Under eyes posted by Don Correloane on February 15, 2000 at 12:51:50:

: Ive had large dark circles around my eyes for as long as i can remember.

: I thought this was just genetic as both my dad and sister have it, however
: i found some information that suggests that these dark circles are caused
: as a side effect to an allergic reaction in the sinuses.

: Can anyone help me out here??

: what kind of medication would take the dark circles away if they were
: caused by some sort of allergic reaction?

: does the allergy shot work for this??

: any help would be much appreciated

I have those same circles under my eyes and my mother and her sisters do too. My son, who is 4, also has some dark shading under his eyes. When I mentioned it to his pediatrician he said that is what is called the "allergy shiner" and said that it is common to people with allergies.
