Caption: Skin wound. Artwork of a superficial skin wound showing affected layers and minor bleeding. The skin is a protective layer which covers the entire body surface, and prevents injury and infection of the inner organs. When it is cut, it is possible for infectious agents (such as bacteria) to enter the body and bloodstream. This cut is only superficial, as it penetrates only the epidermis (pink, top layer of skin) and the dermis (yellow, lower layer). Capillaries can be seen damaged by the wound (red and blue, lower centre), and there is minor bleeding at the wound's edges. The blood will clot to form a protective plug over the wound, preventing further damage.
