  • He should welcome the advice if you are good friends. And, yes, it is highly contagious so talk to him soon.

  • ask him if he has noticed anything different with his feet and see what he says!! He has to notice how itchy they are good luck

  • That shouldn't be embarassing, it's the foot. He probably would know. Maybe telling him his ass sticks might turn him red.
