I’ve Had 3 Transplants to My Eyebrow Hair
Hello, I was missing the middle of my eyebrows ever since I was a child. My oldest child pictures have virtually no eyebrow hair in the middle but it wasn’t noticeable until I became a teenager and they darkened. I have no idea how I lost them or perhaps I was born that way. When I was a teenager the remaining hair started seemingly shedding. So I got 2 hair transplants with a doctor.
What I am concerned about is the remaining original eyebrow hair seems to be shedding too much and it seems from the before and after shot I have less of the original hair than I had before. Today when I put tea tree oil on the original hair to get rid of the dry skin 15 hairs from my original brows came out. I just had a third hair transplant into my eyebrows so the trauma from the surgery might be why but still it’s just an example. The transplanted hair does not seem to be effected like the original hairs but if possible I still want to protect what I have left of the original hairs in case I am loosing them. I did pluck a lot of the dry skin plaques out so I might have lost some of the hairs to traction but that doesn’t explain why the hairs shed so easily and I’m wondering if this shedding suggests that the follicles are in danger.
My dermatologist doesn’t know whats wrong. Is their any tests I could take to determine what is causing the excess shedding and possible hair loss such as a hair biopsy or skin biopsy? Could the inflammation from the dermatitis be causing telogen effluvium or something? Is there anything I could do to stop it? I feel very discouraged about finding out what the problem is.
If you have seen a good dermatologist and had a good hair transplant doctor, I can not add much here as I would have less information than they have. You could be experiencing some shock loss in your eyebrows, but I’m just not sure, as I’ve not examined you and am not familiar with your history. If your dermatologist doesn’t know what the problem could be, I’d try another dermatologist.
