Sudden eyebrow loss

Thirteen days ago my just 13 year old daughter suddenly lost most of the hair in her right eyebrow. The GP did blood tests to rule out thyroid problems, and diagnosed it as a local infection to be treated with antibiotics and steroid cream. No further developments until yesterday when she complained of pins and needles in her left eyebrow, which then fell out suddenly about three hours later. This is very distressing for her, and for us. Can anyone advise what they think the cause might be, and what sort of specialist we should go to for help?

Thanks
