Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

You can undergo further test like Peripheral Blood Film to diagnose the type of anemia.

The facial rash seems like butterfly rash.

If any history of joint pains further testing like ANA may be considered.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Please use the REPLY/SEND BUTTON to reply back to me. It’s request to avoid poor/bad rating.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.

What's ANA? Like R arthritis? How would that be related to dark circles?

Butterfly rash, is a medical sign consisting of a characteristic form of facial rash. It is often seen in lupus.

You need to be tested if you have any history of joint pain or body aches.

It can also be related to anemia as well.

Peripheral Blood film may be done to diagnose the type of anemia.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
