My son is pulling out his eyelashes!
My 12.5 year old son has started pulling out his eyelashes. He basically has no eyelashes on his right upper eyelid. He orignially told me he was doing it because he had white flakes on his lashes and he was picking those off. He did, but that was for like 2 dyas. He has been doing this everyday for a couple of months and his lashes are gone. Sometimes he will intentionally do it…goes in the bathroom to look in the mirror and sometimes he’s just doing it…I see him in my rear view mirror or when he’s doing homework. He’s on Focalin XR 15 mg. Does anyone have a similar situation or have any tips to get him to stop?
