Having eyebrow and eye lashes hair loss. Painful, itchy and dry eyebrows. is this the side effect of Procerin ?

I am suffering from eyebrow and eye lashes hair loss . It is happening from last 6 months. I lost half off my eye brows. I am getting some red rashes and after few days the rashes are converting into white color patches (like dandruff ). My eye brows are very itchy and sometimes I am getting sharp pain. My eye brow skin is very dry. I applied moisturizing and olive oil but there is no relief . Just for a note : 1 year back I started using Procerin for my hair loss and I used it for 2 months . Is the hair loss problem is due to this medication.? I consulted dermatologist and he prescribed some ointment and there is no use. Is there any test to determine the exact cause for my hair loss ? Please help …

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hi Kamalnath,
Your symptoms are suggestive of a condition called Blepharitis ,which is an inflammation of the hair follicle (eye lash).
It can be due to Bacterial infection or Allergy or Even Head Lice.
-The first and foremost is to keep your lid margins clean and moist . Use a drop of mild preservative free shampoo ( Johnson's baby shampoo) and scrub both your lid margins twice a day and wipe it with cotton soaked in warm water. Continue this for a period of at least 1 month.

- the second step I would suggest is treat the cause. Get yourself examined by an ophthalmologist who will give you
An antibiotic ointment twice a day if it's due to bacterial
Or assess the severity of your allergy and add up a mild steroid drops/ ointment with anti allergics
Or remove the lice under the microscope and then an eye ointment.

Once the cause is found, it is a treatable condition and you need not worry about it. Make sure to maintain lid hygiene and avoid rubbing of eyes.

So,take care.
