Background  The skin has evolved an epithelial defence mechanism which is characterized by antimicrobial peptides that inactivate various microorganisms and exhibit stimulatory activities bridging innate and adaptive immunity. Dermcidin (DCD) is a newly isolated antimicrobial peptide produced by the eccrine sweat glands in the skin. Recently, the DCD peptides DCD‐1 and DCD‐1L have been shown to display in vitro microbicidal activities against bacteria and viruses.
