Hello forum! I've got light dark circles from around the time I got asthma, it was mild so I didn't take medication but as time went by I went to a doctor and got Formetrol/Budesonide inhaler. The dark circle still seems to persist and I am not having much luck with night's sleep.

Any tip to get a good night sleep and reduce the dark circles is much appreciated.

Have you tried anything to help you sleep? Melatonin? Otc sleep aids? Sleepytime tea? Do you happen to know your peak flow read?

Do you live in an industrialized city? Chances are it's an atmospheric substance that you are allergic to. You need to see an allergist and be tested to find out what it is that is causing the dark circles.

Sometimes, emotional upset can trigger it, but if you're feeling well otherwise, I would suggest allergy testing.

Good wishes,

Clear your bedroom of all allergens:
pets, carpet, dust collecters, dust ruffles, etc.

Get a hepa filter for the bedroom.
wash bedding in hot water
get allergy covers for bed and pillow

take your medicine regularly

Asthma medications can deplete minerals and key vitamins like C & D (not sure about B).  Have you tried supplementation (especially of minerals)?
