Skin and nails

Your skin provides an airtight and watertight barrier between your vital organs and the outside world - it's there as much to keep things in as well as to stop them falling out. But as the body's largest organ, it comes with its own problems. If you have an itch, a spot or something else wrong, put your question to our community.
