True or false? Human skin produces antimicrobial secretions.

1 Answer

Yes, it is true!!!!


We all know that our skin is constantly affected by microbes. You just think of it if there are no such secretions, what will our situation be?

Our skin is an amazing organ and unfortunately, it is affected by many microorganisms.

Our skin secretes ANTIMICROBIAL PEPTIDES ( AMPs ), which is the primary system of protection and also its responses to some microbial invasions too.

Cutaneous production of antimicrobial secretions helps in reducing inflammations and psoriasis.
