REDNESS

The human body is amazing.  It consists of a number of biological systems that work together to carry out specific functions necessary for everyday life. The integumentary system is the largest organ in our body consisting of the skin, hair, nails, glands, and nerve receptors.  It is our first line of defense against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. 

The skin not only protects us from harmful organisms, but it also assists in providing cushion, thermoregulation, elimination of waste through perspiration, and houses sensory receptors to detect pain, sensation, and pressure.   Our circulatory system transports blood, nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and hormones around our body to maintain homeostasis – balance.

When there is a disruption in the circulatory system, our integumentary system can become fragile, weakening the skin from its balanced state.  Alterations that are most visible in the skin are conditions such as erythema, erythrosis, couperosis, and the vascular disease of the face known as Rosacea.
