  • If you have been crying or vomiting it can cause small blood vessels under the eye to break. They usually go away in 24 hours.

  • It's because you've been hanging upside down. When you hang upside down it causes the blood to rush to your head making some of your blood vessels strain especially under your eyes, it generally goes away after three days, it's quite normal and nothing to worry about. My little brother hangs upside down all the time and has red tiny dots under his eyes and a dermatologist said it was normal since he hung upside down.

  • I was happy to find this post, as I got the same type of little red dots under my eyes after doing a "hot yoga" session yesterday. This has never happened to be before in years of doing traditional yoga, so I thought it was possibly because of the heat. We spent much of the class upside down so that's probably it - thanks!

  • These posts have all made me feel a little more relaxed, thankfully. I'm 23 & had a big night of drinking last night, waking up to find redness, almost like a rash but not itchy or painful, all around my eyes & forehead. This doesn't usually happen after I've been drinking, but I did spend most of the night vomiting, unfortunately. Hopefully it goes away asap, I think it'll be a while before I drink anything again!

  • I was sick Sunday and threw up quite a bit and after noticed red dots under my eyes. This had never happened to me. I figured it had to be broken blood vessels from throwing up. I also thought it was b/c I was getting older (i'm 31).I got online to check and it's comforting that this happens to others as well. It's the next day now and they are still there. Sure they will go away soon.

  • I woke up this morning with little red dots encircling the thin skin around both eyes. I spent a couple of hours the night before vomiting (I'm pregnant and what I ate for tea didn't agree with me).I intuitively put it down to the burst vessels due to the vomiting. Blood rushing to the face etc. I can see from these post that it is the most likely explaination.
