I just read your whole post. No problem with my eyelashes however I have something ( I assume fibers ) that come out every night and try to get in my nose and throat. I feel them come out from around my nose mostly. I wake up choking. I tried lots of stuff but what seems to work is a mask ( around the nostrils and mouth ) of de mixed with baking soda wet with aloe vera. I used to use water but aloe, if I make a watery enough consistency the de stays put and I do not breath it. They will not move over it I guess. I feel them try to come out but stop. I have not heard anyone else with this issue aside from you and myself. I sure wish I knew how to get rid of it.
