Yes: Very contagious if you share living space (shower, etc). Be sure to wear foot coverings, not to soak your feet for long periods (no baths), keep your feet dry, and use antifungals.

Yes...: These types of fungi have the ability to infect normal tissue, so they can get into the skin without an obvious opening.
