My son has just developed dark purple circles under his eyes. Is there any reason i should be worried about this? He has been VERY grumpy the last few weeks from teething (i think) could this be the cause? Or could it just be that he is tired? He usually sleeps 1-2hrs during the day and 11-14hrs at night. But over the past few weeks he has been a little unsettled during the night waking 2-3 times but not being awake for over 10 min.

My daughter is dealing with the same thing. When you say allergies. What kind of allergies are talking here; food, pollen, dust, animal? All of the above?

Low hemoglobin or allergies. My daughter had leukemia and this was her only symptom. Take him to the doctor.

He could be tired, his sore gums may be making it hard to sleep. Does he suffer from allergies? Sometimes kids get dark circles from them. If it continues, I'd ask his doctor, just to be sure.
