Pale inside lower eyelids can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'needs attention' to 'life-threatening'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose pale inside lower eyelids, we could:
|Iron Deficiency Anemia||95%||Confirm|
|Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome||52%||Possible|
With the help of a friend or a mirror, gently pull down your lower eyelids and look at the inside surface. What color is it? Only answer if your eyes feel 'normal', without problems such as dryness, itchiness, pain, swelling, or infection.
Possible responses:→ I can't do this test / don't know
→ I have current eye problems
→ Very pale/white, (almost) no trace of pink or red
→ Light pink
→ Rich pink or red
Losing color in the cheeks and inside lower eyelids is a symptom of HUS.
