PLease help: 9 year old boy with all his eye lashes fallen out


My son is 9 years old and we moved to Florida in Nov 2021. Since Dec 2021 all his eye lashes have fallen out and has not grown at all. His lids tips are slightly swollen and itches sometime. There are no other symptoms.

I have had him tested for thyroid and nothing. Treated him with steroidal antibiotic cream and no improvements.

He is pretty active and happy most of the times.

He has had eczema and pretty controlled after treating him with HOmeopathic meds when he was 1.5 years old. He does have some random flare ups and usually controlled.

I have been giving him Rhus tox for 3 days two times a day as suggested by a homeopath. But no changes.

Can someone please help? Its been 6 months.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Cud you post the medicines taken for eczema
How long back and for how long did he take steroids?
Kaps last week
Eczema meds were taken when he was 1.5 years old.

I remember giving him silicea, dtap, Psor, ars alb, Kali Bic.

His antibiotic steroids were taken for last 10 days once a day at night, mustard size applied on his eye lids.

He had taken Hepar sulph 200c today morning.

He had been taking Rhus Tox 200c for last three days twice a day.

His itching seems to more. There are some tiny hair on his eye lids here and there. But he pulls it or rubs it and it falls off from the follicle.

Hi Kaps,

I have given 2 days of calc carb 30. His itching has reduced significantly in his left eye and other eye, there is some itching.

His is also in happier mood in general and no crying for small things.

The eye swelling on his eye lids is still present. There is a 1 fully grown hair near his inner left upper eyelid. But the other hair that grew feels like have fallen down.

Please advice what I need to do next.

Wait for a 1-2 days let the itching get subsided completely if it does not happen till then repeat calcarea two doses in One day
Then post complete symptoms
Kaps last week

vidrathi last week
Avoid applying any cream since itching has improved

Thank you Kaps.

I will give him and post response in day or two.

Any idea what is causing the issue? Is it allergies? Should I keep him away from any triggers?

The recent change in environment includes beach visits, goose feather couch.
