    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Does anyone else have eyelashes that hurt? I know this sounds funny, but my eyelashes (the point where they grow out of my eye lids) hurt and I pull them out all the time. I am almost to the point of having no eyelashes b/c I pull on them so much! I was just wondering if this could be a celiac thing. I was just diagnosed so have only been on a gluten-free diet for a few days. Wondering if my eyelash problem will get better....

I don't know if it is celiac or not. My eyelashes grow funny. When they start to hurt like you described, I pull them out. When I get out the one or more that hurts, I notice that the root is actually a little ball, so I am thinking that something is wrong with the growing process. The only relief is to pull them out, but then I have no lashes. I do get moderate relief from antihistamine drops and ice packs, so I keep trying to get past the painful stage and see what happens. For me, this started with an allergic reaction to some Maybelline mascara.

Wow, this is EXACTLY what I was talking about! Finally someone who has the same problem. Did it ever get better?

Nope. I've had this for almost 20 years now. All I can do is treat my eyelids when they start to hurt. The antihistamine drops are prescription Patanol, and the ice pack is, well, an ice pack! Wish I could offer more help!
