Why would my little boy(who has red hair and is naturally ghost white) be pale all the time with red rings around eyes? The rings are worse when he is tired, but people always say he is pale. He is very fair skinned and hasnt seen the son in about 4 months(winter in england lol). He seems fine and eats sorta ok. I have started giving him vitamin drops just in case. Any ideas?

My son didn't have red circle, but dark but he is not really fair skinned either. Anyway, I noticed a huge difference when he started cod liver oil. He chews the gel caps, lemon flavor and really likes them. Maybe someone else has a better idea though.

we walked into the ped's office and one look at her and he says 'this girl is anemic'..sure enough her iron levels were sooo low (less than 1)<br><br>
i'd get him checked..literally within days she was getting better--sleeping better, more energy, gaining weight again (she hadnt gained anything in abt 5 months)<br>
