    Yes, sinus infection can cause the appearance of dark circles under eyes. Because when you get cold, the pressure inside the blood vessels will increase, slow down blood circulation and make skin paler, the dark circles more distinct. There are some treatments to improve the dark circles. 1. Cold/hot compress of eyes. Put two towels in a cup of warm water and a cup of iced water separately. After applying one towel cover eyes for 5 minutes, apply another towel for another 5 minutes. This can stimulate blood circulation. 2. Potato eye mask. Slice potato, and cover it on the dark circle. Potato can lighten the color of skin. 3. Drinking clear/mineral water instead of coffee. Water can facilitate the toxins elimination. 4. Applying concealer to cover the dark circles.

    Yeah, the sinus infection may cause the dark circles under the eyes. Once you get the sinus infection, the immune system will reduce. As the throat, nose and eye nerves are interlinked, your eye nerves will intense and the blood circulation around eyes goes not fast which may cause the dark circles under the eyes.

    Yes. sinus infection can cause dark circles under eyes. Though there are lots of factors that can cause dark circles, sinus can be one of the reason. If you got sinus infections, it can make your dark circles under eyes appear more prominent due to the inflammation pressure on the blood vessels underneath the skin. So, take care of your eyes.

    Yes, sinus infection can cause dark circle under eyes. You should know that sinus infection can cause the appearance of dark circles, by increasing the pressure inside the blood vessels. Both cold and sinus infections can also make the skin paler and the dark circles look more distinct. Also, there are many other factors that can cause dark circles under eyes, such as the allergy and alcohol, or stress. So you should also pay attention to those factors.
