Can Sinus Problems Cause or Worsen Dark Under Eyes?
I had a chronic, constant sinus infection from age 13-18. One side effect was that the dark patches under my eyes I'd always had worsened significantly. Finally, an ear nose and throat doctor diagnosed me with vasomotor rhinitis (non-allergenic sinusitis caused by excessive or oversensitive blood vessels in the nasal membrane). Surgery corrected the sinus infection but the dark circles, while slightly lessened, remained. My sisters also have dark patches since an early age (we are 1/4 African American), but the one who has the darkest also had to have the same surgery. How can this be treated?
