Loss of eyelashes or Madarosis is common after Shingles
. The cause may be scarring or non scarring in nature. There is no effective medical treatment for loss of eyelashes and if it is non scarring in nature, it will grow back after the episode of shingles is cured, sometimes taking as much as 6 months. If the cause is scarring in nature, the eyelashes do not really grow back and you may need follicle or hair transplantation
at the site as a cosmetic procedure.
