Not long ago started using rapidlash, an eyelash enhancer serum, are there side effects?

Some side effects: The manufacturer reminds people to apply the product to the eyelashes and not to get the applicator or product in the eye itself.

It supposedly contains a prostaglandin similar to that found in latisse (bimatoprost) - the only FDA approved product. ...Read more

My daughter age seven months has swelling in upper portion of the head and doctor has advised blood culture, lft, kft, CBC & serum electrolytes.?

My daughter age seven months has swelling in upper portion of the head and doctor has advised blood culture, lft, kft, CBC & serum electrolytes.?

Swelling?: Is it on soft spot? Has imaging studies (head ultra sound or skull x-ray) done? Is it new or was she born with it? What does it feel like? (sort or bony hard) does it bother her? Is it tender? I'm afraid, without knowing the answer to all these questions, it's hard to make a judgement call as to what tests to order. ...Read more

Somatizing?: This is classic. I strongly suspect you are in a difficult life situation and this itself is causing your symptoms. This is the commonest single thing that we see in clinical medicine. The normal sensations of a living body are registering as sickness. If I'm wrong, forgive me -- but these testes would pick up anything serious. I'd urge you to hit the gym hard & build quality friendships. ...Read more

I swim 2 hours daily. I know that chlorine damage hairs. Does it also damage eyelashes like affect its growth or stunt it? Will they thin over time?

Not a concern: I don't believe I've heard that swimming damages or affects the growth of eyelashes or eyebrows. The chlorine in the water can certainly affect the color of hair though. A good swimmers shampoo can help rid the scalp hair of the excessive accumulation of chlorine in hair, but I wouldn't use it on your eyelashes. ...Read more

Some possible causes include thyroid disease and autoimmune hair loss (alopecia areata). There is a prescription medicine that can help grow eyelashes and possibly eyebrow. It is called "Latisse".
