It will go away: Black eye is not a problem in the skin but is like a bruise due to bleeding under the skin and that can take weeks to get absorped in your system and consulting a Dermatologist will not help. Meanwhile you can cover it up with make up

My under eye is black whay?

My under eye is black whay?

a few possibilities: Many people inherit them to some degree, but other times environmental factors such as lack of sleep or allergies of the eye/nasal sinus area can contribute. Getting better sleep and addressing whatever allergies that may have, both in the eyes and in the sinuses, may lessen the dark circles. Less commonly, conditions such as eczema, anemia, or liver disease can cause these circles.

Possibly: Redness under the eyes of a small child could be many issues. The most common would be allergies or any other source of eye irritation leading to chronic rubbing.

Cool soaks and rest: Dark circles occur when the blood vessels beneath the skin show through in those that have thinner skin in this area. Allergies can make this worse. Use allergy meds as needed and try cool soaks to the area. You can probably make it better, but not get rid of these entirely. This is genetic and not a disease.

Vitamin K Ointment: I have had limited success with a Vitamin K enriched moisturizing crème for blotchy skin. It helps stabilize the little blood vessels and moisturize the thin skin around the eyes. Get more sleep and try sunglasses to prevent sun damage to the skin around your eyes. Artificial tears might help, but avoid astringent products which can cause rebound engorgement of the blood vessels. See an EyeMD.

Allegic shiners: Your dark circles may be due to allergies. Those circles are known as allergic shiners, because of stagnated blood shimmering through your fine skin. See an allergist for evaluation and possible treatment. Your daughter shouldn't be affected if you can determine what the causative allergens are.

Is the cause of black under eye of allergic rhinitis and itching of the eye?

Allergic Shiners: These are known as "allergic shiners" and are due to nasal and sinus congestion within the mucosal tissue that causes a back up of the blood flow out of the sinus, leading to the classic black eye. Decreasing nasal congestion is the best way to treat.
