Hi ayoosh25,

Have you seen a doctor and are you being treated for anemia?

The thread "bags/dark circles" with a reply by Dr Colbert may be helpful to you.

If you wear makeup then you may want to try various foundations and concealers to see what looks best to cover dark circles. Check on how it looks in natural daylight as well as indoors (such as the lighting in school rooms). It may take some testing different shades to see what works the best for you.

Good luck!
