Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Dark circles are multifactorial....stress is most common reason(as in your case it is after delivery)...iron deficiency ,vitamin def can also lead to it..even lack of sleep is an important reason.Sunlight can aggravate your start with a good sunscreen daily .As far as black heads are concerned you can use tretinoin cream 0.025% locally at night (apply very little..only if you are not feeding the child) ..use this cream every alternate nights...and use a sunscreen at day time.This would gradually take away your black heads.
take care,

Dear Madheena
this occurs many a times after delivery and the causative factor is lack of vit. and specially iron. You can have iron suppliments and amongst diet the best blood forming ingredients are green leafy vegetables as they have lot of iron, pomegranate beet root, sugarcane juice jaggery nuts and milk must be added in your diet. Amongst medicines i woould recommend Cap. ferroliv forte one bd.

thanks for choosing health care magic.After pregnancy you need to take care of vitamins and calcium supplementation for at least six months.Usually this is not done and so you have problems.See you doctor and get vitamin supplementation from him.Also take nutritious diet comprising of green vegetables,fruits .Take adequate sleep as this is also important.For black heads you can use black head remover strips and some home remedies.Wash your face particularly after coming from out side.
