Hey zapmil, I doubt a doctor would provide advice on a forum for practical reasons. If your friend is averse to visiting a doctor, I would suggest getting started with penicillin by mouth and potassium permanganate solution applied externally (hot soak). He should be aware of temporary skin discolouration from the latter (can be easily fixed by beach sand exposure).
