Hello,

i have these black circles under my eyes and bags, especially under the left eye. What can i use to get rid of the bags??

pippistrellodaqua :

I am happy to help you today with your question.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

Dark circles and bag-like appearances can be from several causes.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

Often, the first thing I recommend is to perform what we call warm compresses and lid scrubs.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

To do this you should take a wash cloth and place it under very warm water. With you eyes closed you can rub gently at the base of the lashes and keep the heat on the eye. Repeat this several times for about 5 minutes and try this 2 times daily.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

These lid scrubs and warm compresses will promote a healthy tear film and proper eyelid health. This alone can help with the appearance you have noted.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

Sometimes an oral antibiotic is needed to further treat the eyelids appearance.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

If the warm compresses and lid scrubs don't show improvement after about a month, it may be something that needs to be addressed in person by your eye doctor.


 

pippistrellodaqua :

Do you have any additional questions or concerns?
