Question Dark Circles Under Eye from Allergies?

Hi!

I'm sick of the dark circles under my eyes.

I have nasal polyps that are not severe enough to remove, but cause mild to medium congestion. I'm probably suffering from some allergies, too, which contribute to fluid/mucus production. Itching my eyes a lot breaks the tiny blood vessels around my eyes and I have thin, white skin which makes everything more noticeable!

I cannot take a steroid nose spray (like Flonase) because of an early-onset cataract due to taking lots of steroid meds when I had childhood asthma. How lovely.

I've tried:
* Lubricating eye drops (but will now be trying preservative-free)

Things I haven't tried:
* Saline nose spray (I know people that get addicted to this)
* Neti pot
* Cold compresses
* Taking an OTC allergy med daily

Does anyone share my issues and have advice? What have you tried? If you've tried anything I haven't, please let me know what you recommend (brands welcome)!

Thank you, dears.

Well some people may get adicted to some nosesprays but NOT saline ones and it wouldn't matter if they did. It's just water and salt anyway. I use Ayr but the neti pot works well too. And antihistamines can help but may not totally take care of the issue.

Thanks for the tips!

Actually, my step Grandma got addicted to the saline spray and she had to get help to stop because it was affecting her blood pressure issues.
