I can say that yes - DS's raccoon eyes have gone away. However he had them every month when he was cycling with illness before we knew he had Lyme + co. Then they were semi-permanent during the first months of treatment and now we haven't seen in awhile.

Interesting.

I wonder how to make them go away? Even during my remission/6-7 month period of being symptom free I had them. uhmm....

I had serious dark circles under my eyes when I started treatment, it improved gradually but then they would come back. Recently they have gotten better because I found out that I was anemic and started taking iron. Now there's no dark circles under my eyes.

Iron levels? I'll look into that

I would think dental issue or marcons-a biological dds checkup and a nasal swab would tell if there is an issue

"So some of you all were able to get rid of them?"

Yes. Mine werent so puffy though. Tghe dark was mostly during my worst sleep of my life (lyme and when adrenals were messed up.) They got a little yellow too, from my liver being taxed. Family commented.

Look better now. So is sleep and adrenals.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again w/with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Hashimotos adds to the enjoyment.

Interesting. puffiness still there for me however not as dark compared to when it first started.

It's the one physical/cosmetic part of recovery I can't seem to fully recover.

Someone mentioned iron earlier in this thread. Perhaps I should try an iron supp.
