Did you ever hear that under eye creases show an allergic (prone to allergies that is) person?

I have heard this also.  I think they are called dennie's lines.  My son has them and does have allergies (we just can't figure them out).  I'm curious to know if they are often specific to a particular allergy or not.

I have heard of these it is a type of eczema (atopic dermatitis). My son had eczema and his dr said that it is a sure sign that you will have some kind of allergy. Google is your best friend!

The creases are not eczema but they can be a marker for allergies and are an indicator of atopic dermatitis - eczema.

My son has significant creases under his eye and has had them since always but does not have eczema at this point but he's also never had wheat or dairy which are my triggers.
