What causes dark skin between the eyes?

What causes a blackening of skin around the eyes? I am not talking about dark circles under the eyes but a severe darkening of the skin between the eyes. If you place your thumb and forefinger over the bridge of your nose and touch the inner corner of each eye, imagine that all the skin under the pads of your finger and thumb - is turning black.. I eat, sleep properly, still this is happening. I am a teenager.

Hi,

It could be due to autoimmune disorder or vitamin deficiency. Get a serum ANA and vitamin B12 level tests done.

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