Human sweat gland, sweat pores

Our skin or dermis is covered with pores these are known as the sweat pores and are positioned at the top of each sweat gland. They help to cool us when we are warm by oozing fluid which moistens the skin and reduces its temperature. The pores are precision perfect set in circles with each pin point producing a tiny amount of sebum.

I thought it was amazing and so interesting to see that there are eight small spots to each of the pores which are grouped in a circle. It reminds me of creatures from the deep blue sea. The fact that it is in eights and not twos is also unexpected.


how interesting, thank you
