EYEBROWS,EYELASHES AND FACIAL HAIR FALLING OUT LIKE MAD!HELP

Post by DaveJobGoodman »

Hi all! I am having some eyebrow, eyelash and mustacheloss as well as dry,flaky and itching skin in the areas were I lose hair. This all started in oktober 2013 and I am at the wrink of sadness! All my symptoms came at the same time and I am not joking.

At the inner center of my eyebrows, they are a bit red, not a lot but and I can only see the redness through a 3X mirror. My eyebrows also has what it seems to be a lot of dead skin cells and that my eyebrows are very dry and brittle. I have however noticed that almost all the hairs that fall out all look the same and it seems that it is a popped up whitehead/blackhead and that the waxy sebum is attached to hair makin it weak. I have no bumpness/plugs on my eyebrows and the hairloss is at most on the innerbrows. On my beard, the beard hair that falls out has lost its pigmentation/colour making the hair whitish and it also has this whitehead/blackhead waxy sebum attached. I have lost a ton of eyebrow and facial hair and have yet to seen any regowth. This loss of pigmentation/colour doesn´t mean on every facial hair but the majority of the losses that happens each day. I also have ordinary pimples that are big and red on my eyebrows which I didn´t have before the symptoms. Before the treatment experiment, my eyes were dry, I wake up with crusts in my eyecanal, eyelids itch, eyelashes fallout very EASY and I could lose up to 4-8 lashes on each eye per day and I have yet to see any regrowth and there is always something white hanging at the top of my eyelashes all day. My scalp is dry as my eyebrows, kinda like dandruff. I lose my scalp hair in a symmetical pattern and it itches constantly! The patternloss is that I lose it on my sides and nape areas. I do get regrowth but I have some bald spots that won´t gow back. My body also itches quite a bit and I got some redness on my stomach and trunk area. I don´t have a lot of pimples on my face but rather a lot of comedos ( whiteheads/blackheads) and this is something that has always been my skin genetics since puberty. I can find them every where on my face but I got an increase when the symptoms stated to shot. The itching seems to be more severe as the days go by. I also start to flush and itch more when I sweat, become scared or suprised which is not something that has happened to me before. The flushing can become quite uncomfartable when I workout becuase it makes my eyebrows feel funny and weird. Can demodex mites make the eyebrow area to become dry and look like seb derm/dandruff ? Can demodex mites cause this symptoms!? Is this caused by demodex?

I stumbled across a comment on acne.og about the hairloss being demodex mites and after searching I found that dry mustard is a way to kill demodex mites and if you breakout out a lot, that means that you are killing the mites. I started the treatment the itch was gone on my eyebrows and made it not as itchy anywhere else on my face, eye area,scalp and body. I did breakout quite a bit the day I woke up after I applied the mustard and soon after the zits got smaller over time but I don´t know about the hairloss though, if it got less or more but I still had it. I did this for 1 month.

I still don´t know what is going on and I have gone to 4 different dermatologists but they all said something different. One said alopecia, one said it was nothing and the dry skin was due to it being winter and the hairloss was due it being seasonal shedding, one said seb derm and the last one said demodex. None of them however did a biopsy. I still don´t know what I have and it is destroying my life! the itching doesn´t bother me but the hairloss does and I am yet seeing any hair regrowth. I need some help as I am only 19 and my life is about to begin and I dont want it to end (I have thought of commiting suicide if I dont have any eyebrows,eyelashes and beard left becuase these are my trademarks and something I was foundly proud of becuase I have bad hair genetics on my scalp.)

Hello

I can imagine this is a terrible thing for you, if this is caused by demodex mites is hard to tell without doing a test for those mites, I still don't understand why derms are not able to do a simple skin scraping test for demodex mites, it so easy and takes two minutes without any invasive procedure but it is how it is for now.
Can you not find somebody who has a microscope?
it doesn't need to be an exotic one, 40X multiplication is enough but it needs some kind off light system under the glas slide.
It is so easy to do, you can find how on our website.
Can demodex mites make the eyebrow area to become dry and look like seb derm/dandruff ? Can demodex mites cause this symptoms!? Is this caused by demodex?
Yes, this is one of the possible symptoms
I don´t have a lot of pimples on my face but rather a lot of comedos ( whiteheads/blackheads) and this is something that has always been my skin genetics since puberty
This is indeed genetic but this doesn't mean you need to have so much troubles with this, you probably make a lot of sebum.
The other side of this is that this is the perfect environment for demodex mites to thrive so there is a big possibility you have a demodex mite problem.
about the hairloss being demodex mites and after searching I found that dry mustard is a way to kill demodex
Maybe mustard does something but for sure not solve the problem, people don't realise how difficult it is to eliminate demodex mites, most of the time, by teasing the mites with some stuff they make the problem only worse in the long run.
The mites eggs and nymph forms are protected by a impenetrable substance and cannot be killed with nothing,
the only way is to kill the adults effectively and break their breading circle.
If I was you, even if you can not find a microscope, I would start using the ZZ ointment (cream) for your face, eyebrows etc but use not too close to your eyes, not eyelids or lashes.
For your scalp best to use our scalp lotion.
Keep up the spirit, for most things there is a solution

Do you hhave to change the enviroment around you ? Like change/wash your pillow case everyday, don´t use the same towel as you used before etc. Can I use the zz cream on my scalp bald spots and eyelashes? Can I also use the zz cream two times per day, morning and night, instead of fumaligin cream morning and zz night or is it to much? Will the zz cream help with unclogged pores and cure it?

I also forgot to ask if it is safe to use a shampoo containing selenium and sulfur before condition/ using a demodex product unto the scalp? Can I also shampoo and condition my eyebrows to clean any blockage and the dandruff?

Hello again
Do you hhave to change the enviroment around you ? Like change/wash your pillow case everyday, don´t use the same towel as you used before etc. Can I use the zz cream on my scalp bald spots and eyelashes?

You can do some things but dont get too obsessed with this, demodex mites die soon away from the host,
changing pillow case and clean towels is a good thing to do, best to put them in the drying machine after washing then they are dead for sure.
You can of course use the ZZ cream twice a day if your skin can handle it, this is even better.
On your bald scalp spots u can use the zz cream but not on the eyelashes, there you need to use our eyelash cream for.
The zzcream will try to shrink your pores but when it is geneticly that you make too much sebum (like I have) then this will
become a bit better but dont go away complately, however, once the mites are gone you will be able to puch the excess sebum out of those pores very easy without creating infections.
I also forgot to ask if it is safe to use a shampoo containing selenium and sulfur before condition/ using a demodex product unto the scalp? Can I also shampoo and condition my eyebrows to clean any blockage and the dandruff?
Yes you can do
