Caption: Sole skin. Light micrograph of a section through the skin of the sole of the foot. The skin of the sole is thicker that most other skin. The outer layer is the epidermis (top), which is made up of dead, keratinised skin cells. These are continuously shed and replaced by cells from the germinal layer below (dark purple). Beneath this layer is the dermis, which contains connective tissue along with nerves, blood vessels and sweat glands. The white areas at bottom are part of the fatty subcutaneous layer. Magnification unknown.
