thank you Dr.Vikas your detailed answer has helped a lot. In my case it is old age and perhaps fluid retention though not hereditary. When I drink more water it becomes more prominent though urine flow is no less. These eye bags have developed after the sciatic attack on my right side. The sciatica pain is under control, thankfully, due to the wonderful homeopathy medicines since last four years. Last year I developed eczema on my left ankle which is taking time to heal. I thank you again for taking out time to reply in detail.
Dr. Shahnaz for eczema ankle you may also consider the following if they match with the symptoms ,
I wish if it could help you , all the best and get well soon

To study the face is to study the organs connected to each feature- The kidneys are represented in the area located under the eyes. Puffy/bags/discoloration is usually a sign of an imbalance within the kidneys. This said; Treatment must be from the perspective of all realms (mental/physical/emotional.) A trauma of 'fear' causes imbalances within this organ (kidneys). It is impossible to post a handfull of remedies that might apply. One MUST look at the overall individual.
Its a nice study on a somewhat common ailment "Puffiness around the eyes" posted initially by Dr Shahnaz;
Comment by Dr Vikas and Dr Gina are very informative indeed. It shows how homeopathy can tackle the problem by taking the symptoms with emphasis on "Location, sensation and modality" and any concomitant that may be available at that time in form of another symptom.
As Gina says that with Puffiness we have to study the face and concomitant about Kidney, urinary symptoms, together with other symptoms which will be our best guide and " One MUST look at the overall individual" to select A remedy.
In recent days i have used Boenninghausen's repertory and have been finding it really helpful; though i have other software also.
