Sounds like allergy shinners to me. I had the same thing as a child. I still have them now as an adult. I use concealor all of the time. Even medications for my allergies don't help them. I think it is something that she will have to just live with.
rule out allergies. my daughter had a similar under eye thing going on for years, and was tested for juvenile dermatomyositis, which is exactly what it looked like, but she fortunately didn't have that, she responded well to medicine for rosacea, even though that is not what it looked like. but start with allergy meds and/or testing!
mami-- dang so she might have these all her life? my mom has the black circles under her eyes always has.. i guess aubree in herited them/
i think i will get her an allergy test
Allergy testing isn't going to be reliable until she is much older (usually 2+ years). The dark circles can very well be allergic shiners...OR hereditary!
My daughter is 2.5 and has them as well. Always has. :( People always ask if she's tired or has been crying! They are much more noticeable when she IS tired, or sick. Hers are hereditary. (thanks to me!) :)
I've always had them, and I've always had bad rhino-conjuntivitis (nasal allergies) the mucus glands around the eyes stay congested with mucus that start acumulating from your nasal glands. I'm extremely allergic to cats and dust and so I sneeze a ton and have stuffy nose and eyes itch and then I get the dark circles.
It gets better when the allergies are controlled. If she's indoor a lot then she may have indoor allergies which are usually nasal. Keep her sheets clean and keep her room dusted and pets away.
