Is it common to experience dark circles under one’s eyes during allergy season?

Every single fall my allergies flair up and it has become so bad of late that I’m starting to develop dark circles under my eyes. Is this a normal occurrence or should I be concerned?

You might have seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (SAC). Patients often experience symptoms in spring, summer, or fall, depending on the type of plant pollen you are allergic to. This condition of chronic dark circles under your eyes is called allergic shiners.

Additional symptoms:
runny nose
sneezing
nasal congestion
itchy, watery eyes

Try not to rub your eyes! This actually makes symptoms worse and can cause infection.

You can improve your skin’s appearance as well as improve your nasal and sinus function with proper treatment, don’t suffer anymore.
