I : I suggest you go back to see your dermatologist. You may need a higher dose of the medication, or a change in medication. In addition it's not a bad idea to see an eye specialist (ophthalmologist) for the dark lines in your sclera( white part of eye). There may be other options like laser therapy that may be helpful. Good luck.

if the creams are not helpful you may need additional creams with azaleic acid, soy,or an additional lightening agent.lasers and chamical peels can also be very helpful..

Tough : Dark circles around the eyes are difficult to deal with. There are some lasers that a good, surgical fat grafting from a plastic surgeon can help too. If you want to use creams, i recommend any eye cream that has caffeine.

Best treatment is: a Ruby laser!
