Eyelash Loss (Madarosis)
Eyelash loss isn’t life threatening in any way, but it is very frustrating and distressing. Adding to the frustration is that there is no one cause of madarosis, and so no one solution, either. It’s enough to drive someone to despair, but there are options for stopping eyelash loss and possibly even getting back the enviable lashes you used to have.
Causes of Eyelash Loss
Before you decide that you have madarosis, you should know that in the same way that hair on your head regularly falls out and is replaced, all of us regularly lose and regrow eyelashes, too—usually without even noticing it.
In the case of madarosis, however, there is profuse lash loss – some people wind up having no lashes at all. You probably won’t even know why it’s happening.
