Hi Chris and welcome to HealingWell. My husband has this condition and I can only tell you what he does and what I know about this.
He saw an ophthalmologist first of all. This is an eye specialist who knows more about the health of eyes than a family doctor. If there are bumps on the eye lids among the eyelashes, they might be infected and you would be prescribed a topical antibiotic like Gentak, specially made for eyes. It's also the same as used for styes. If there is no infection, then, you would simply be instructed to cleanse your eyelids along the eyelashes twice a day. There are special medicated pads for this called OCuSOFT but these are really expensive if you have to use them everyday. You can buy these over the counter but the doctor told my husband he can just as well use baby shampoo on a clean wet face cloth to gently clean the eyelash area and then rinse twice daily. This is what he does now and the condition seems to be ok.
If you haven't seen an ophthalmologist, please go see one. Good luck and I hope you get better.
