I started losing eyelashes about 4 months before I was diagnosed with blepharitis. My doctor thought it was due to my anemia and put me on iron pills. I have now been treating my blepharitis for the last 4 weeks with antibiotic ointment, warm compress/massage, tea tree oil/baby shampoo eyelash cleaning and upping my omega3’s. Although my eyes feel a bit better and are also a little less swollen I am loosing even more eyelashes than before.
I haven’t been able to find a lot of information about eyelash loss and blepharitis and I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar- where your eyes get better but your eyelashes fall out even more. I wonder if maybe the eyelash loss and blepharitis are not related after all and I need to look at my iron levels again.
Thank you for any help!
