Firstly, avoid sun exposure to your child's face. Is he allergic to cow milk. He needs to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables in the diet to remove vitamin deficiencies which can also cause such problems. Let him be well hydrated. Dermatologist should examine him as this dark circles could be due to allergy if he has, called Allergic shiners. He may be having scaly skin on the shins of his legs as well, kindly check. He needs to keep away from smoke, dust, pollen, allergic food. Better skin depigmentation creams exist like Hydroquinone but should be applied only when his Doctor prescribes.
