Skin structure and skin diseases

Our skin is the largest organ of our body, covering the whole of our body, 1.2 m2 wide and weighing 11 kg. Our skin protects us from various environmental factors such as pressure, heat, cold, chemicals, ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun and bacteria, and provides the heat balance of our body. In addition, the sense of touch, which is one of our five senses, is perceived through our skin. In addition to all these physical functions, the skin has an important place in human psychology. A beautiful and healthy skin affects a person’s psychology and social life positively. Therefore, the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases is important both physically and psychologically.

In fact, the most common diseases are skin diseases. Almost everyone in society has one or more skin diseases. Many skin diseases can leave permanent scars (especially acne) or a simple itch can be a sign of an important internal disease if not treated early. They can even cause death if not diagnosed early, as in skin cancers. Our skin is actually a mirror of both our general body health and our soul.
