Causes Eyebrow Loss
What could be the cause of eyebrows hair loss? My aunt doesn't have a single hair on her eyebrows. Blood analysis revealed nothing.
Alopecia areata: This condition is an autoimmune reaction that causes the hair to fall out in patches. It is not contagious or dangerous. Aa can localize to the eyebrows and may regrowth spontaneously. Shots of a dilute kenalog (triamcinolone) solution may be useful. Aa can rarely be associated with thyroid problems, pernicious anemia, diabetes and vitiligo.
Usually not: Usually affects skin not hair.Get a more detailed answer ›
Can any of the medications my aunt is on cause total hair loss (even eyebrows)? Please see attached medication list.
No: I am not aware of these as side effects. She may have been exposed or taken something else to cause these problems. She also could have developed an undetected thyroid condition. This is easily tested for occurance.
What do you suggest if my eyebrows are really thinning out and I take 'norimin' birth control, do they cause hair loss?
See an MD: Sounds like alopecia. You should see a dermatologist for a definitive diagnosis and treatment plan.
Beau's lines BAD on toenails, flakey ugly finger nails, BAD diffuse scalp, eyebrow and ALL over body hair loss. 1 year worsening. Possible causes?
Beaus lines: Recommend 2nd opinion with me. You can send pictures and we can figure this out.
I'm 22, I've been having pain on the right side of my head cause's me to not be able to taste, and some memory loss?
Pain: Not sure if u had head trauma before, headaches or what medications you take. Best to consult a neurologist for workup.
See a doctor ASAP: Your description is a concern. Almost sounds like concussion like symptoms. I would not hesitate seeing a doctor asap.
Head injury: It depends. Usually, short term memory deficits are most common. For mild or moderate patient will not develop long term memory lost significantly. If if occurs, you need report to you physician and have more examination to rule out other issues, such as brain tumor, stroke, intracranial bleeding etc. And rule out psychiatric disorder.
Probably not: But do not scratch it too hard
Varies with severity: The extent and duration of memory impairment vary depending on how severe the initial injury was. Mild injury usually produces temporary symptoms, while more severe cases with damaged brain tissue will cause permanent loss of function. Much will depend on the location of the damaged tissue.
If "classical": A migraine variant termed "classical" migraine does cause auras prior to the headache with sparkling lights, areas of decreased vision or even loss of vision over right or left half of visual field, followed by headache. Otherwise eye muscle control is maintained. In another case, horton's cephalgia, the eyelid may temporarily droop.See 2 more doctor answers
Head injury: Yes. A head injury in a car crash is likely to be at least a concussion (in which the violent impact forces the soft brain tissue to decelerate abruptly against the skull). Concusions cause regional brain disturbances, particularly in cognitive functions associated with the brain cortex, including executive function. The type of symptoms depend on the location of brain contusion.
