Our bodies grow hair in various places, but normally we don't notice the sensation of our own hairs resting on our skin. It seems like the brain filters this out (probably to preserve our sanity!)
Every once in a while, maybe once or twice a year, I'll go through a period where I can feel some of the hairs on my left eyebrow touching the skin there. When this happens, I can feel it all day, every day, for a few weeks. It feels as if a hair is curled the wrong way and that I could fix it by simply smoothing out the eyebrow, but if I touch it or try to smooth it, the sensation only becomes more noticeable. This always happens exclusively to my left eyebrow, never the right.
This time I'm also noticing that I can feel some of the hairs on the edge of my scalp nearest my left eyebrow. Brushing the hair in this area with my finger seems to help for a few seconds, but the sensation returns quickly.
Is there a name for such a condition? I've been trying to research it, but so far when trying to search it all I've found is people who obsessive-compulsively stroke their eyebrows, which I don't think is the same issue as what I'm experiencing.
