Should I be concerned that my 2-year-old daughter’s lashes were burned by accident while trying to blow candles out?
Fortunately eyelashes, if the base of the eyelid and follicle of the lash are unharmed, will grow back in about six weeks. This is obviously a lesson learned for your 2-year-old. Best not to get too close to a flame. You may wish to bring your daughter to an Eye M.D. to check her eyes and eyelids for their overall health.
