Some 100 Species of Fungi Live on Our Feet

Some 100 Species of Fungi Live on Our Feet | Dermatology Mosaic | Scoop.it

Segre and colleague Heidi Kong recruited ten healthy people from the Washington, D.C., area and cotton-swabbed 11 fungal body-and-arm hot spots: the back, palm, elbow pit, ear canal, the space between the eyebrows, the crease between the thigh and the groin, the upper part of the sternum, nostril, back of the head, forearm, and behind the ear. The team also sampled three parts of the volunteers' feet: the heel, toenail, and webbing between the toes. The scientists then put the swabbed samples directly into an advanced DNA sequencer—a technology of the Human Genome Project—to find out which species were living in which area.

 

They discovered that a few species in the genus Malassezia dominated the core body, but that the feet host between 80 and 100 species, depending on the place on the foot—the heel, for instance, was more thickly populated than the toenails.

 

Why do fungi have a foot fetish? As our lowest extremities, feet are cooler compared with the rest of our body and thus more attractive to cold-loving fungi, noted Segre. The team also compared fungal communities in volunteers with toenail infections and discovered that each infection had a different makeup of fungi species.

 

This may explain why treating foot fungal infections is so challenging—there's no one-size-fits-all treatment, she said. The study could help scientists identify different types of toenail infections, which could lead to more effective antifungal treatments.

 

But killing off all fungal hitchhikers is not always the best course of action. Segre stressed that fungi have the important job of preventing disease-causing microbes from sticking to our skin.

 

"It's an ironic feature of our culture that people want to populate their guts with beneficial microbes," she said. Yet "everyone wants to sanitize their exterior and has this ... gross feeling about bacteria and fungi that live on our skin."

 

Microbes break down oils and provide natural moisturizing. When you put on lotion, she said, you're actually "fertilizing your microbial garden. They need those oils to grow."

 

Jack Gilbert, an environmental microbiologist at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, noted that the study is a preliminary investigation with only ten adult subjects, so it is too early to make "sweeping statements." But "the work is literally pioneering when we think about microbial dynamics: No one's looked at it before," said Gilbert, who was not involved in the study.

 

This is a "vital first step for understanding how those pathogens and the rest of  our cohabitating organisms may be helping to protect us from other organismsand contributing to disease."
