  • Is he really pale? My middle son is so fair skinned that he has dark circles if he is tired at all. It is worth talking to the doctor though.

  • Have you had her blood tested? I would take her to the doctor and ask for a blood work up, dark circles can be anything from lack of sleep to something worse.

  • It can also be allergies, my oldest gets dark circles around his eyes when he has allergy problems.

  • I've always had dark circles under my eyes and one of our sons inherited it from me. What I was told was we have thin skin under our eyes, so we have to deal with people always commenting on our sleep habits! We get plenty of sleep!
    Sleep sometimes has nothing to do with it.

  • Dark circles can be hereditary! Thier could be nothing wrong! Try some vit E oil where all the supplements are at in the local store. Doesn't hurt to ask the doctor!

  • Lack of sleep - so is he getting enough sleep?
    Allergies - do you know of any allergies he has?
    Hereditary - does anyone else in the family have similar dark circles?

    Make a dr. appointment and check with the doc.
