allergies and long eye lashes

Has anyone ever heard about having long eye lashes and having allergies? I have never heard of this before and wonder if it's actually true or if it is an old wife's take Thanks

I am not really sure what your question is. It is possible to have longer eye lashes than average and any one can have allergies.

It is recommended that people with allergies shower before going to bed to wash away allergens that collect in their hair and on their sking before going to bed and continuing exposure through the night.

Is someone is complaining that their long eye lashes are making their allergies worse, it would make sense that longer lashes would collect more allergens which could increase exposure. The function of eye lashes is to protect the eyes by removing debris before it gets into the eyes.

I hope that helps.

Take care and
God bless.
