Hello doctor? I want to ask why my lashes can’t grow anymore for 9 years because at that time, I had eye problems with eye discharge stuck to my lashes when I wanted to clean my lashes and even pulled out my lashes until the roots how can they grow again?
Hello Meida, thank you for the question.
The condition of losing eyelashes can actually be caused by several things, including:
Trauma to the area where the eyelashes or hair grow, for example burns that can damage the normal structure of the skin, including disturbing hair growth Habit of pulling hair or eyelashes, so that the growth of hair in this area slows down hormonal disturbances, which causes hair growth disorders Infection of the eye area, especially the eyelid or eyelash area. this can cause a decrease in the rate of growth of the eyelashes or an abnormality in the growth of the eyelashes. I suggest that you should monitor your body condition at this time, and if conditions arise such as:
Red eyes, painful, a lot of yellowish and greenish eye discharge and sticky eyes that are very painful and there is a decrease in the field of view, like a curtain closes on the sides of the eye (can be a symptom of glaucoma). can receive light well, for example being pain and excessive glare Baldness that occurs in other parts of the body and occurs massively or widely. Immediately consult your eye doctor or the nearest emergency room.
I hope this helps.
