Epidermal System (1)

   The skin stretches two square meters and weighs over 10 pounds! Waterproof yet permeable, protective yet sensitive, skin may best be described as the outer expression of inner health. The epidermal or integumentary system is susceptible to a variety of diseases, disorders, and injuries. These range from annoying but relatively benign bacterial or fungal infections that are categorized as disorders, to skin cancer and severe burns, which can be fatal.
