do you have asthma? ever since a car accident 20 yrs ago I have developed asthma, but also have the dark circles under my eyes. One doctor said he didnt know why, but all of his atopic asthmatic patients have them. Afriend of a friend recently moved from a  greater metro area, to a small rural community. Her sons dark circles cleared up, suggesting allergies were involved in his previous town....
