Injected steroids (possibly cortisone) was used to remove a stye on lower eye lid and now it is permanently(I think) red there with no more eyelashes, will they ever grow back or is there something I can do to make it look normal again? Thank you.

Hello,Compared with the rest of hair in other parts of the body the regrowth of eyelash hair takes a much longer time.
Also if there is a scarring due to the stye itsef,or due to individuals forming scar tissue then if there is a follicle scarring it would not grow.
Assuming that your follicles are intact due to no visible scar you should be getting back your hair.Only thing you have to wait. ok?
