What can I do about my sunken eyes
Dark circles may be related to the allergies, and eye-rubbing. The best advice to eliminate or minimize the circles as much as possible - would be to avoid hand-to-eye contact and do not rub the eyes. The dark, crepe-like skin is a sign of inflammation from allergies and rubbing, and/or venous congestion in the blood vessel networks under the thin skin of the eyelids. Rubbing of the eyelids and eyes can cause damage to the delicate tissues of the eyelids, and the cornea. Floppy eyelids, ptosis, mucus production, and irritation may result.
You may want to see an ophthalmologist in your area for advice on treatment of peri-ocular allergy symptoms. Best wishes.
