You can get over-the-counter cream for styes - I've had one called Goldeneye, but there are probable others too, I don't think he'll lose more eyelashes, it's usually just one follicle which gets infected. But if he's rubbing his eye then they'll come out more. Do stop him doing that if poss, specially as he could spread the germs to the other eye too!
