    Maybe - it depends on on a few things. Yeast infections are easily transferred. Bacterial infections are more difficult to contract from this type of contact, but its possible you could become infected if you have not previously been exposed to that particular type of bacteria, or if you have some other medical condition that weakens your immunity. If the infected area has scabbed over, or if it is covered with a bandage, you are unlikely to be exposed to anything contagious.

    I highly doubt it since it doesnt affect his bodily fluids and may just be a skin liason. However contact your doctor soon, before any sexual contact.
