Hello,well i had plucking my eye-brow one month ago,however,it would't grow anymore like they used to be, there,i was scared and i was wailing to put any thing on just for make them grow faster and thicker.
i heard about a garlic that it helps them to grow thicker and i did put some around the eye-brow
next day,it was all dark and burnt it's been three days now the burn wouldn't go away.
please,what can i do ?for the burn and for the eye-brow .

Hi thanks for writing here.It seems you have developed contact dermatitis due to garlic .Such things should never be tried specially where skin is thin like on face and genitals.You can just start applying a topical steroid antibiotic combination like flutibact cream for one to two weeks which will help you clearing the dark patch.Do not apply anything on it,take sun protection.As far as your eybrow hairs are concerned if they are not growing then it may be alopecia areata ,in that case you can consult a dermatologist and take further treatment for it.
