Foot Fungi
    #3198619 - 09/30/04 03:01 AM (13 years, 25 days ago)

Just to wonder, would it be possible to contaminate a jar with a foot fungus? Say that I have athletes foot and some of the spores were to get inside of the jars somehow, would they be able to contaminate it even though it isnt on a foot?

May it have been the one that you are no longer aware, but now it has become a reality.

I bet it's possible, but probably very tough to do.  Athlete's foot is spread by contact--walking on moist communal floors, etc.  It's not going to be much of an airborne contaminant to jars. 
Even isolating it on agar isn't the easiest thing. . .Often you have to dig a little bit on the foot to get a viable culture.  Tineus is a slow-growing fungus, and is often out-competed by other environmental molds.
So if you really worked at it with agar isolation on appropriate 'dermatophyte' media, I'd bet a grain jar would colonize. . .but don't try it, please :wink:
