Can eyelashes regrow?

Half of my eyelashes on one of my eyelids have fallen out and don t seem to want to grow back I am presently using Latisse for 2 1/2 weeks and the eyelashes I do have seem a little longer but this area in the centre of my eyelid just won t grow back. My eyelashes have always been very short and fine and I have occasionally had more eyelashes fall out intiny clusters but I have never experience such a big loss with little to no evidence of regrowth.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your case history, you are suffering from alopecia aerata. My treatment advice is:

1. Take good nutritious diet full of green leafy vegetables and milk.
2. Take an iron supplement and vitamin B12 supplement once daily for 3 months.
3. Other treatment options are oral steroid like prednisone or betamethasone to be taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harshit Bhachech
