Allergies?: In the field of medicine, we call these "allergic shiners" that can be due to chronic nasal sinus inflammation that does not allow the sinuses to drain which also inflames the blood vessels occluding their ability to drain....Leading to "allergic shiners." might be time to get checked out by an allergist for treatment options.
