  1. How long have you had the eyelash symptoms?

    Why: to determine if acute or chronic.

  2. What eyelash symptoms do you have?

    Why: e.g. matting and crusting of eyelashes may suggest blepharitis; graying of the eyelashes may suggest vitiligo; eyelashes that turn inwards towards the eye and scratch the surface of the eye may suggest trachoma.

  3. Past medical history?

    Why: e.g. blepharitis may be associated with seborrheic dermatitis, eczema or Rosacea; vitiligo may be associated with thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, pernicious anemia and Addison's disease.

  4. Symptoms of blepharitis?

    Why: e.g. eyelids have burning, itching and red margins, eyelashes may have crusting and scales, discharge or stickiness especially in the morning. If present for years there may be loss of eyelashes or distortion (in-growing) of the eyelashes. There may be a Staphylococcal bacterial infection which can cause severe inflammation with pus-like discharge.

  5. Symptoms of trachoma?

    Why: e.g. watering eye, intense redness of the eye, scarring under the eyelids, ulcers on the surface of the eye, eyelid turn inwards and eyelashes scratch the surface of the eye. Trachoma is especially prevalent in outback areas and in aboriginal communities where hygiene may not be adequate.

  6. Symptoms of vitiligo?

    Why: e.g. white de-pigmented patches of skin, white and prematurely graying hair and eyelashes, patchy scalp hair loss.

  7. Dandruff of the scalp?
