I was using castoroil to grow my eyelashes I start noticing that my upper eyelid started to be weakened and relaxed can my eyelid return normal if stp?

See eye Dr.: Castor oil is a heavy, high molecular weight oil to be using on the eyelids, I would recommend thinking of other ways besides using castor oil for eyelash growth, as it's not indicated for that. In fact, I would stop using it around the eyes altogether. Your eyelids should return to normal. You should see your eye doctor regardless, so that they can monitor what you're doing, and advise you further. ...Read more

My eyelashes have fallen out in a small patch on one eye. It has been a couple of weeks and they don't seem to be growing back! What should I do?
