Madaurosis: Madaurosis or loss of eyelashes is most commonly the result of a staph infection of the eyelid margin called blepharitis. Treatment with warm compresses twice a day and scrubbing the eyelashes with the eyes closed when you shower with Johnson's "no tears" baby shampoo or Sterilid foam and then rinsing well could help. If after a month you are not seeing improvement - see an ophthalmologist.
MAYBE: Not all chemotherapy drugs cause hair loss. The ones that do can then lead to eyelash loss. This is a temporary side effect. Once chemotherapy is completed, hair regrows along with eyelashes.
Likely, but in time.: There are 3 growth cycles of an eyelash and it can take several months for them to grow back. It is normal for us to shed our eyelashes but they do so in a somewhat staggered pattern so we don't notice it in one certain area. The chalazions can affect the health of the eyelash follicle and make lashes come out earlier or damage further procution. Prevention of chalazions is key here. Good luck!
Chalazion: Chances are that the eyelashes will grow back
Blepharitis: The crusting could be a type of inflammation called "blepharitis" or it could be an eye infection. The lashes may be falling out because of the blepharitis, or it may be a sign of an underactive thyroid. You would need to have an eye physician check your crusting eyelids, and you might need a simple blood test to check your thyroid.See 1 more doctor answer
Dermatologist: You have several choices. Dermatologist, family physician or even an endocrinologist would be suitable.
What are your thought on eyelash conditioners? I hear Revitalash is great but I'm worried about my eyelashes falling out/shortening as a side effect.
Not harmful!: Glad its helping! Avoid "Curling" methods with your lashes since this will pull them and break the keratin binding! Good Luck! Hope this helps! Dr Z
Loss lashes uncommon: Many conditions possible, including herpes zoster, leprosy, hiv/aids, malignant eyelid tumors, lupus, scleroderma, and hypothyroidism. It may occurs via two pathways: scarring and non-scarring, loss of lashes may occur as an isolated finding or together with loss of other body and scalp hair.
