5 yrs male child with dark circles under eyes plz advice possible Dx & Rx


Well, we already had a discussion regarding the treatment of dark circles in adults. A paediatrician would be able to advise us better on this topic, but I'll list what I know. 1) In my experience, I see this is most commonly found in some nutritional deficiency.. anemia or vitamin deficiencies. I can make out long eye lashes in this patient which is a subtle sign of possible vit A deficiency. 2)Allergic conjunctivitis (including vernal catarrh ) associated with allergic rhinitis and sinsusitis 3)sleep deprivation of any cause.(I have seen ADHD patients on treatment with methyphenidate having this finding although this is rare.) 4) Uncorrected refractive error causing patients to rub eyes repeatedly 5)Allergy or sensitivity to any type of food. 6) hereditary dark circles Basically it seems like a sign of poor health in children.
