Upper layer of the skin is called epidermis and its middle layer is called corium. The lowest layer of the skin is dermis. Last ending of the nerves are present in these portions of the skin. This is the reason that the skin feels any pressure or pain after touching or giving pressure from any thing or hands’ fingers.

Figure of skin structure:

          There are 25 sensitive organs in one centimeter portion of the skin and these organs give information of touch. These organs feel coldness from 6 to 23 degree and pain whereas other kinds of sensations as tolling, itching and vibrating are not the result of receptors but it is the reaction that has be obtained with excitement.

Following are the sensory receptors of skin-

1. Pacinian corpuscle

2. Crosses

3. Meissner’s corpuscles

4. Ruffini’s corpuscles

5. Free nerve endings

Form and structure of the sensory receptors have been given below-Its structure appears to the layers of chopped onion. These are present in the middle region of receptor

1. Pacinian corpuscle: Its structure appears to the layers of chopped onion. These are present in the middle region of receptor named corium and dermis. These are found in the layer of dermis too. It makes feel the heavy structure of deep pressure.   

These receptors are present in the upper layer of corium. It is the receptors of cold.2. Crosses: These receptors are present in the upper layer of corium. It is the receptors of cold.

 

These receptors are huge in number and keep on hugging to one another.

 

3. Meissner’s corpuscles: These receptors are huge in number and keep on hugging to one another. These are the conscious points of touch. Meissner’s corpuscles are present in corium. These are present in feet, soles, palms, fingers’ tips in large number. It makes us feel light touch.    These receptors are for heat and temperature. These are present in corium.

4. Ruffinin’s corpuscles: These receptors are for heat and temperature. These are present in corium. These receptors make us feel temperature. 

 

5. Free nerve endings: There are minute holes of branches of innumerable nerves which are the receptors of pain. These re There are minute holes of branches of innumerable nerves which are the receptors of pain. ceptors make feel pain.

Working system of skin:

  • The skin receives fat and water. Sweating and secretion of fat glands save skin from dryness by giving nutrition to the skin. Subcutaneous fat saves the body from cold and external injuries.
  • The skin keeps the temperature of body in control. It controls to the temperature of the body in control and helps in blood circulation and perspiration.
  • The skin gathers fat and water. Sweating and excretion of fatty glands save the skin from dryness by providing nutrition to the skin. 
  • Subcutaneous fat saves from cold and external injuries.
  • The skin controls to the temperature of the body.
  • Sensory organs found in the skin warn about outer dangers.
  • The skin expels out toxic substances from the body through perspiration and fat glands. It helps in breathing too.
  • The skin absorbs ultra violet rays of sun and invent vitamin ‘D’. Consequently, children do not become the victim of rickets.

Color of the skin:

          Corneum of the outer skin makes new cells of skin and expels to the dead cells in the form of dandruff and crust. The melanin pigment situated in the upper skin keeps on sustaining the color of the skin. The skin is too much black if there is excessive melanin in the skin.

Thickness of the skin in different portions of the body:

  • Thickness of different portion’s skin is different on different portion but generally its thickness is from 0.3 to 0.1 mm. Thickness of the skin of neck, lids and forehead is from 0.4 to 0.1 mm whereas the thickness of the skin of palm is from 0.6 to 1.2 mm. In the same way, the thickness of the soles of feet is from 1.7 to 2.8 mm. The skin of the heel can be more than it too. 
  • The thickness of the dermis is from 1.7 to 2.8 mm. Its thickness is 0.6 mm on the skin of eyelids and 1.5 mm on the forehead. It is 2 mm thick on the skin of brain. Its thickness on the skin of neck is from 4 to 5mm.   
  • Fat of the skin is the thickest part of the skin and it is found mostly on hips, cheeks, stomach and breast. There is no subcutaneous fat in the testicles, penis, eyelids and labia minora.
