Rare and brittle eyelashes can be due to a microscopic tick that infects the hair follicles. This pathology is called demodicosis of the eye, which is accompanied by itching, especially in the morning, with cuts and sticky secretions. For this reason, the loss of eyelashes is necessary to get rid of pathogens, and then you can safely take up the restoration of healthy hair growth.
