MADAROSIS

Also known as milphosis, is the abnormal loss of eyelashes (Ciliary Madarosis). It could be caused by inflammation (blepharitis), alopecia, tumors, endocrine disorders, congenital disorders, drugs and toxins, or wrong applied make up or extensions.

 

CRAB LICE

These are parasitic insects which infest pubic zones and other areas, including eyelashes. They use to feed with human blood, and the treatment with Permethrin and Pyrethrins is hard, and should be completed with fine-teeth combs and washings.

BLEPHARITIS

Is the chronic inflammation of the eyelids. It can be due to infection (staphylococcus, herpes, fungus, and others), seborrhea, trauma (plucking, rubbing, bad applied extensions), or allergy (specially to cosmetics).

STYE

It could be an infection of sebaceous glands at the base of the eyelashes or an infection of the sweat glands. It's not a chronic condition, and usually disappears in one week without treatment, or 4 days with antibiotics.

TRICHIASIS

In this condition the eyelashes are reversed positioned, growing back to the ocular globe. Causes could be infections, inflammations, autoimmune conditions, congenital defects, and trauma (burns or injury).

TRICHOTILLOMANIA

It is a psychological disorder based in the compulsion of pulling out one's head, and results in hair loss and skin damages. It's a chronic condition very difficult to treat.

DEMODEX FOLLICULORUM

These are parasites, face mites, who lives in the eyelashes follicles. They eat sebaceous secretions and dead cells, and they reproduce inside the follicle. With a length of 0.1 to 0.4 mm., they can infest the eyelids.

TRICHOPHAGIA

Around a 15% of sufferers of trichotillomania eat their hair. This is a serious psychological disorder, which could lead to the complete loss of eyelashes and serious digestive problems.
