A 34-year-old female asked:

Why do i have white salt crystals under/ at the beginning my eye brows? above/not on my eyelids, not near any ducts. nothing is inflamed, flaky, red, itchy, sore, etc. no correlation with sweating or skin care products. its is easily brushed off?

I would consider this eyebrow dandruff caused by a form of seborrheic dermatitis. A dermatologist would be best to consult for evaluation,advice,treatment and follow-up.
