Hello,
Bald spot in eyebrow can be due to ringworm or fungal infection or alopecia of the eyebrow. Ringworm is a fungal skin infection that occurs on the face, body or scalp. The symptoms of Ringworm or Tinea Capitis include a dry itchy scalp, scaling, crusting, inflamed nodules, hair loss and tender enlarged lymph nodes on the neck.

To confirm the diagnosis you need to get it examined from a dermatologist and get a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done. If fungal infection is confirmed then only topical and oral antifungals are taken.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
