When your eyelashes hurt it's due to inflammation eyelids caused by clogged oil glands in the hair follicles that make up your eyelashes.
The condition is known as Blepharitis.

You should see an eye doctor to get a prescription ointment for the inflammation especially if the infection doesn't go away within a few days.
