Which body part or function is involved in Skin Diseases?

Skin is one of the largest organs in the body concerning the surface area and weight. It is made up of two layers: the superficial epidermis and internal dermis. Below the dermis is placed the hypodermis or subcutaneous fatty tissue layer.

The skin performs three major functions in the human body that include serving as the first line of defense, regulation, and sensation. Any abnormality or injury affects normal functions of the skin. The main function of the skin is to act as a mechanical barrier to protect the inner surfaces from hazards of the outer environment. The skin prevents mechanical effects and pressure, changes in temperature, micro-organisms, radiation, and chemicals and governs various factors of physiology, including body temperature via sweat and hair, and variation in peripheral circulation and fluid proportion via sweat. It also works as a reservoir for the synthesis of Vitamin D.

The skin contains a substantial network of nerve cells that recognize and deliver changes in the environment. There are different receptors for heat, cold, touch, and pain present in the skin enabling a person to sense the changes. Several skin disorders result in prolonged discomfort. While multiple skin disorders are secondary, others can reflect a more severe condition.

Multiple skin conditions cause severe skin issues in humans. Most often skin diseases can have the same symptoms, so it is crucial to recognize the differences between them. Skin conditions differ greatly in indications and severity. They can be short or lasting and may be painless or severe. Some have situational causes, while few may be hereditary. Some skin diseases are superficial, and others can be fatal. Several skin disorders result in prolonged discomfort. Some may start in childhood and continue into adulthood. In some cases, the condition will not always be present but will show up at particular times. While multiple skin disorders are secondary, others can reflect a more severe condition.
