In brief: Blepharitis

Often due to inflammation, blockage of eyelid glands.
Try warm (not hot) soaks for 5-10 minutes at bedtime - keep rewarming washcloth as necessary. If no relief, see your eye dr.

In brief: Lid scrubs

Agree, you can also try lid scrubs where you take a qtip and tip it in very dilute baby shampoo and rub your lids to try to clean out any blocked oil glands.
This can be done 1-2 times daily in addition to the warm compresses.
