Relative lack of blood flow to the tissues can cause dark shadows commonly.High cholesterol, BP are common factors.Allergies or eczema also can cause darkening of the skin.You can try topical aminophylline cream available over the counter daily to improve blood flow.Hydrocortisone ointment can be tried daily for eczema related skin changes.Best wishes,
