Blepharitis: Blepharitis or meibomian gland disease is the most common cause of eyelash crusting. You should see your eye md to be evaluated and for treatment and prevention routines.

Blepharitis: Inflammation of glands can cause such symptoms. Use warm compress to wipe and scrub the affected eyelids daily. In severe cases you may need antibiotics.
