    Unhappy nasal problems and dark circles

    Hi,

    I have had dark circles when I was around 12. Now I am 19 years old and feel so bad about them. And I heard that nasal congestion might be the cause of my dark circles. I had severe nasal congestion before but now congestion is not that bad. I can breath with my nose with slight congestion. As for my dark circles, I notice a weird phenomenon that after lying on the bed for about 30 minutes or walking for a while, my dark circles fade halfly. I want to know how to cure my congestion and when congestion is cured, will my dark circles gone?

    Thanks!

    It is due to allergies causing the congestion. Are you treating them?

    Thanks for reply. I underwent detection of about 20 allergens and I am not allergic to any of them. Should I try a more comprehensive detection? BTW, I started nasal irrigation last week.

    20 isn't very many. Was it a skin scratch test? If not, that's what you should have. And the nasal rinse is great. Try a zyrtec once day for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.

    Thanks. That was blood test. I gonna try zyrtec first and if it works, I will have skin scratch test.

    The blood test is not as specific for environmental allergies. Hope the zyrtec helps.
