  • What are the different causes of dramatic lash loss?


    I have an appointment coming up tomorrow and I was wondering what the different causes of for eyelash and eyebrow loss are, as I want to make sure nothing is overlooked. I have lost probably about half of my eyelashes, and a small part of my eyebrow. Every day I lose more lashes and brow hairs. Most days I get at least one eyelash in my eye.

    I have read that demodex is one possible cause, and I'm going to be checked for that.

    I have also read this can be a symptom of lupus.

    Is it ever the case that blepharitis on its own causes severe lash loss (in people who don't have either of the above)?

    Is there anything else I should be looking at as a possible cause?

    Thank you for your help, and thanks to everyone who works on this forum, it's been such a great source of information and support for me.
