Feet home to more than 100 fungi
The feet are home to a whole community of fungi. We all have nearly 200 different types of fungi colonizing our feet, scientists have discovered. Fungi live all over the human body, but their favorite spots are the heel, under toenails and between the toes, according to a US study. Harmless fungi live naturally on skin but cause infection if they multiply. In the first study of its kind, a US team cataloged the different groups of fungi living on the body in healthy adults.
Fungal skin infections
Fungal infections are common and include athlete's foot, ringworm and yeast infections. Athlete's foot, also called Tinea pedis, is a very common fungal infection of the foot, causing peeling, redness, itching, burning, and sometimes blisters and sores. Fungal nail infections affect about three in every 100 people. The most common symptom of a fungal nail infection is the nail becoming thickened and discolored which can turn nails white, black, yellow or green. A team led by the National Human Genome Research Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, sequenced the DNA of fungi living on the skin at 14 different body areas in 10 healthy adults. Samples were taken from the ear canal, between the eyebrows, the back of the head, behind the ear, the heel, toenails, between the toes, forearm, back, groin, nostrils, chest, palm, and the crook of the elbow. The data reveal that fungal richness varies across the body. The most complex fungal habitat is the heel, home to about 80 types of fungi. The researchers found about 60 types in toenail clippings and 40 types in swabs between the toes.
Other favored fungal hotspots include the palm, forearm and inside the elbow. These had moderate levels of fungi, with each location supporting 18 to 32 types.
“The bottom line is your feet are teeming with fungal diversity, so wear your flip flops in locker rooms if you don't want to mix your foot fungi with someone else's fungi”.
