Loss of eyelashes

I had an itchy eyelash (!) a few days ago and wanting to pull out the offending eyelash I accidentally pulled out quite a few <g>. There is a bit of a bald spot on my eyelid. Will the eyelashes grow back? How long will it take?

Auie, they should grow back within the next 3 months. Just make sure there is no underlying infection – ask your doctor to have a look if you’re not sure. Good luck.
