There are bruises under the eyes
We are not surprised when adults have bruises under their eyes. Causes (in children) of darkening of the skin under the lower eyelids have their own characteristics. Rarely, this is due to the "individuality" of the person passing on the parental genes. More often it is an indicator of some "malfunction" of the work of the organism or a violation in the normal way of life of the child. Of course, any deviations from your child cause anxiety in the parents. Pay attention to even small things, because sometimes they are - the tip of the iceberg.Just do it calmly, without frightening and not out of balance yourself and, most importantly, the child.
Bruises under the eyes
Causes in children, as noted, can be purely aesthetic in nature, and may be an indication for a doctor's visit. There are children who have dark spots under the lower eyelids and characteristic swelling in the same place can be observed at an early age, for example, 6-9 months. If we are not talking about health problems or imbalances in nutrition and lifestyle, such dark bruises under the eyes will always "be present" on his face. As a rule, this is a hereditary feature, i.e. such circles and swelling are in one of the parents of the child. Their appearance is determined by the fineness of the skin under the eyes, the proximity of the vessels and the subcutaneous tissue. When it is obvious that this is the case, then Mom and Dad should not be particularly worried. If you are sure that your child is getting enough sleep, gets all the necessary vitamins, substances, and also experiences adequate regular physical activity, it happens much in the open air and is not overtired, but at the same time it has such a feature, then you should not worry. Especially if in a family someone has the same tendency to darken the skin under the lower eyelids. But there are other factors that show bruises under the eyes.
In children this can be caused by such cases. If we are talking about a child going to a garden or to a school experiencing mental and physical stress, then this can be a banal overwork or lack of sleep. Doctors in such cases recommend normalizing daytime activity, ensuring the sleep duration prescribed for the age and reducing exorbitant loads. This should be combined with a regular stay in the fresh air, since from lack of oxygen and air circulation can also appear bruises under the eyes.The reasons for the presence of dark circles and swellings in children are also associated with prolonged viewing of the TV and sitting in front of the computer monitor. Again, this can again be walks, balanced mental and physical loads, compliance with the diet. Usually, after bringing all these areas of the child's life back to normal, the bruised bruises disappear within 3-7 days, as evidenced by parental responses.
Bruises under the eyes. Why else can there be
But it happens that not everything is so simple. It seems that the child is active, asleep as needed, consumes all the necessary vitamins, walks in the fresh air, and these dark circles do not allow parents to live peacefully. If the hereditary factor is not present, then it is an occasion to apply to medical specialists. They will prescribe tests (as a rule, they have to pass urine and blood), if necessary, conduct other studies. It often turns out that the cause of dark circles is the presence of anemia (lack of iron in the blood), kidney disease, impaired lung function, helminthic invasion, intoxication of the body, disruptions in the endocrine system, infection in the genitourinary system, problems with adenoids.
