Pale skin may be due to anemia, undernutrition, hypoprotenemia.

Dark circles unde eyes are marker of allegric disorder,

Allergic shiners is the other name for dark circles.

Look for any Transverse crease over the nose due to allergic salute.

These findings are seen in allergic rhinitis and conjunctiivitis.

My step-son is autistic and I've been taking courses on nutrition therapy and it seems that difficulty processing polyphenols can cause dark circles around the eyes, red cheeks, and hyperactivity. There are other symptoms that occur in more extreme cases such as seizures. Artificial coloring and flavors might be a trigger. Polyphenols are also present in fruits although some more than others. Apples can be a problem. Pears are better, etc. Maybe see if they improve without artificial colors and flavors or apples? Best of luck!
