Under Eye Circles

I know that this post is out of date from when this topic started, but if you still have the "shiner" problems, it's most like b/c you are allergic to Lactose and/or casein (which is a common side-effect celiac disease).
Actually, they are called shiners...
"The symptoms of milk protein allergy can manifest in the skin, the digestive system, or the respiratory system.
Skin reactions may include an itchy red rash, hives, eczema, allergic "shiners" (black eyes), and swelling of lips, mouth, tongue, face or throat.
Digestive system reactions might include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, bloating, or abdominal cramps.
Respiratory system reactions include runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, itchy eyes, nasal congestion, wheezing, shortness of breath, or coughing; or even anaphylactic shock.
Some children may have reddish ear lobes or a glazed look in their eyes. Other symptoms that may be attributed to milk allergy are bed wetting, lethargy, and inattentiveness."
It's worth checking into by getting blood allergy tests for it. Good luck
PS - Since I have found out of have celiac disease and dairy allergies, being on a new diet, my eyes are improving more everyday!

Could you please tell me the source for your information? I'd like to print it and take it to doctor, but from original source if possible. Perhaps that will help convince him to test my son for allergies.
