Suggest cause of darkness under eye and on side of nose

Hi I m a 17 year old kid and over the past two or three weeks I have noticed that under my eye and the side of my nose has been a darkish brown/black color. My mom thinks it is because of lack of sleep but it has been there for about three weeks and I think that it would be to long if it was just that. Thanks!

Hi,

It may be periorbital hypermelanosis. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect treatment. There may be so many causes like stress, sleeplessness, vitamin deficiencies, anaemia, internal diseases, genetic reasons etc. I would recommend you to apply kojic acid containing gel and to take tab vitamin C, Tab Glutathione, cap vitamin E etc. And get treatment for underlying disease.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
