• Will Burned Eyelashes Grow Back?


    Question:

    Should I be concerned that my 2-year-old daughter’s lashes were burned by accident while trying to blow candles out?


    Answer:

    Fortunately eyelashes, if the base of the eyelid and follicle of the lash are unharmed, will grow back in about six weeks. This is obviously a lesson learned for your 2-year-old. Best not to get too close to a flame. You may wish to bring your daughter to an ophthalmologist to check her eyes and eyelids for their overall health.
