One of my younger brothers has a rather odd obsession with wearing socks. He's 11 now and I would have thought that he would have gotten over it by now but apparently not.
He goes to sleep in his socks, he wears them in the middle of the summer - he wears them pretty much everywhere. He absolutely has to wear socks all of the time, except for in the shower or when swimming, and if that wasn't bad enough, he only wears those thick knit sport type of socks. He also hates wearing any type of shoe that he cant wear socks with, like flip flops or sandals.
I was wondering if anybody had a similar type of problem and if there's any way to have him get over it? I don't want him to get some sort of foot disease from wearing them all the time, and would also like to get him accustomed to wearing open toe shoes. Posting in OCD because i'm worried that it might be related to that. Any thoughts?
