Alopecia areata (loss of hair in one or more regions) is a rather common problem that is thought to be caused by an autoimmune process or chemical or radiation exposure. In some people it is genetically linked and occurs at a distinct time during their life.
The National Alopecia Areata Foundation (http://www.naaf.org) lists a number of possible treatments that might help you.
Prof. Garth Nicolson
Dear Dr. Nicolson, I'm the lady who's eyebrows fell out completley and you kindly referred me to the Alopecia Areata foundation website for treatment options. I went there and it's wigs and makeup so I was wondering if you know of any prescription treatments (topical or otherwise) that have been successful at stimulating eyebrow growth?? Or, is it a case of when they are gone they are gone for good??
There are some drug treatments, but I must confess I don't have any first hand knowledge of their benefits/risks.
