A pore is a small opening. These are important structures within the skin.
A typical example is that of sweat pores which are the small openings of the sweat glands located all over the surface of the skin. The skin is also known as the "integument", or "integumentary system".
To view the location of pores relative to the other key components of the skin see the diagram of the structure of the skin. This may be of particular interest to students of courses in massage, reflexology, beauty therapies, and other health science or clinical courses.
