loss of eye lashes can be due to fungal infection or dandruff , use anti dandruff shampoo and take tablet fluconazole 150 mgm weekly for 4 weeks.See that eyebrows also , if lateral part is missing then it is hypothyroidism.Get your haemoglobin done and it is better if you consult a dermatologist and an ophthalmologist also.Eat protein rich diet.
