    The most common cause for dark circles in children are what's called "Allergic Shiners"... It's a very common symptom of allergies. They usually don't go away unless the sinus pressure and symptoms are dealt with. Just a thought

    Does your mom or any of your relatives have dark circles under their eyes? Are your eyes deeply set? Are you underweight, or really thin? All of those things will cause you to have circles under your eyes. Nothing you can really do about it other than to cover them up with a camoflage cream in a bluish tone in order to reflect the light away from the area. Basically they are a cream-like coverup that you apply underneathe your usual foundation.

    I have a 14 year old son.... Actually I have three sons with allergies and I would agree with a previous post..."The most common cause for dark circles in children are what's called "Allergic Shiners"... I can tell when my one son's asthma/allergies are kicking up because of those dark circles. Another thing in children which can cause those dark circles are what I refer to as "Toxic shiners". Sometimes kids don't take time to have a bowel movement each day. Some kids will go for 3 or 4 days since they don't "feel" like they have to go. My youngest gets very dark circles under his eyes if he doesn't go on a regular basis.

    Still another thing that contribute to those dark circles is dehydration.... It is really important to drink enough water...

    The good news is.... they haven't been permanent for my boys and I'm sure they won't be for you. Do try to find the source of those shiners though before covering them up. Best Wishes!
