Hi doctor,

I am a 23 year old female. My BP and sugar are normal. How to treat dark circles?



Welcome to

This condition is very much related to lifestyle. In females it is mostly due to stress, poor sleep, poor nutrition and excessive blood loss due to menstruation and excessive work load.

Other condition like fever, typhoid, malaria, thyroid and long-term chronic disease can cause it.

It can be due to sun exposure and tanning. Sometime, it is also natural due to depressed eye socket face structure.

Treatment are as follows:

  1. Have good sleep and eat healthy fruits and green vegetables.
  2. Take Iron and multivitamins like Follihair for at least three months.
  3. Check your blood hemoglobin. If it is less then should start with Iron and Folic acid supplements.
  4. Check thyroid and diabetes to rule out other causes.
  5. Use sunscreen 50 SPF. But, face wash and soaps are not treatment. Use Ahaglow (Glycolic acid), which is better than others.

For further information consult a dermatologist online -->
