yellow bags under eyes

I have always had allergies and hayfever since i was a child. So they always red and puffy.

I have also been plucking my eyelashes out for 24 years. Now i am growing them.

Anyway i have noticed that when i smile just under the lower lids they are a bit more puffy then normal and slightly yellow.

Does this have anything to do with the paxil taper or just my allergies?

Thanks. x

Re: yellow bags under eyes

If you've suffered from allergies forever, the dark circles (which can appear yellowish, depending on your skin tone) are probably just that. They're called "allergy shiners" http://www.achooallergy.com/blog/Dar...der-Your-Eyes/

You've probably always had them, but are focusing on every little thing because you're tapering.

Re: yellow bags under eyes

I have them too. Not getting enough good sleep makes them worse, and if you're like me... well, your sleep isn't the greatest right now!

Re: yellow bags under eyes

Oh, I am so tired I guess I wasn't very clear... but I have always had the dark circles as well and the get yellowish looking. Just worse now. I know how annoying it is to you, though... because even if I'm feeling just fine (gosh it's been so long!!!), they are still there, shining through makeup!

I have a friend who when he gets really burned out gets two huge black eyes that make him look like a Panda Bear. He really hates it when we call him "Panda".
