See a psychiatrist.: Involuntary hair plucking, including eyebrow plucking, is a psychiatric disorder called trichtillomania. It is best managed by a psychiatrist.

Hypnotism: Habits like that, although not harmful to your eyes or your health can sometimes be broken by medical hypnotism.

Possibly never: If the follicle is removed when the lash is plucked, there no longer is a lash to regrow. Don't pull out the lash follicle.

No: It won't cause skin damage. Over time, the hair follicles will regress and the area will be hair-free if you keep plucking.

No: but sometimes you may end up with a small lump where there hair once was. This would go away in a few days.
