Losing eyebrows because of infection(?)

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had an infection which caused me a major skin breakdown beneath both of my brows. As it progressively got worse each day, I noticed my eyebrow hairs were either disappearing or thinning. I don't know if the infection was the cause. I'm very concerned.

If anyone knows about this kind of problem, I want to ask when my infection goes away would I be able to grow back my eyebrows or has the infection made the loss permanent?

I hope to hear from you.

Thank you.

    Oh my, get a 30x mirror light up. You might see what I had . along with the small white worms, I also had these small black dots that look like black heads .

    First I was totally freaked by the worm things, but then noticed the black head and as I looked closer I noticed that my eyebrows were misshapen then I noticed I had less and less it was these black things that were eating my hair and eating skin it turned out to be body lice that after puttin neem and tumeric paste they quickly went to my head .the dermatologist said it was dandruff wouldn't get a magnifying glass. I waited in the dermatologist office waiting area next to a lot of people even though I asked him repeatedly not to cause I felt what I had was contagious. Get that mirror or get the phone app that magnifies, take pictures
