Hello doctor! My eyebrow hurts and when I pull out my eyebrow hair the hair falls off! Any solutions? Thank you!

Hello doctor! My eyebrow hurts and when I pull out my eyebrow hair the hair falls off! Any solutions? Thank you!

C your pediatrician: Also eyebrow hair does fall out when you pull on it (tweeze it). If not when tweezing, I'd suggest not pulling on it for now, as a temporary solution until you have it checked out by your doctor. Make sure your thyroid is checked too, as often eyebrow hair loss in the outer 1/3 can be seen with hypothyroidism. Your doctor will have more answers after seeing and examining you. ...Read more

I have got a massive cystic pimple in my eyebrow, it really hurts and seems to be becoming bigger. Is there anything I could do about it at home?

Try using local heat by putting a washcloth under very warm, (not hot) water and laying it over the brow 4-5 times per day for 4 minutes at a time. It might need to be opened in some way - start by asking your parents to help. ...Read more
