Jonah gets him when he's dehydrated. We get him to drink extra water and they go away.

Also anemia can cause circles under the eyes...

Maybe sleep? DS got them really bad after he had surgery because he reacted to the anesthesia and it made him all jittery and he couldn't sleep for a couple of days. But I don't doubt that diet or dehydration could cause it too...

Re: What causes under eye circles?

I constantly have really dark circles under my eyes due to my anemia.

It can also just be genetic. The appearence can just be a superficial genetic coloring thing, but we all have them in my family because we all have sinus issues.

Re: What causes under eye circles?

allergies can cause them too. They call them allergy shiners. I have them and so do my kids. Somedays they are bad and other days we do not notice them.

Ditto on the allergy shiners. It was the first clue that my older ds had allergies (other than constant ear infections.) He's been on Zyrtec for 3 years now.
