Patient

Q: I was just wondering if it is possible to get sick from being around someone who is very unhygienic. I work with a man whom never showers changed his shirt once a week and is obese. He always smells really bad has flaky red skin and leaves these skin flakes everywhere. Is it possible for me or my coworkers to get sick from this or is it just an uncomfortable situation?
