Dry/Crusty eyelashes
This may sound really crazy but for the last few days my eyelashes, especially the bottom ones have been really dry and crusty like.  The left one is a little red and irritated.

I just got over pink eye and last Friday my doc. said a little infection left but that I should just finish the drops, he didn't ask to see me back.

Could it be an infection? I have dry eye and thought it might just be part of that.

It is possible you are allergic to the antibiotic eye drops - especially if it has neomycin in it.  If you have been on a drop with neomycin you should see your eye doctor to see if you are having an allergic reaction.  If no neomycin - then it's hard to say what you might have - possible a persistant infection, other allergic reaction, or other problem.  Best to see ophthalmologist if problem persists.
