The skin is the largest organ and the first line of defense against harmful elements of the external environment through the many functions of the immune system, through its structural characteristics, but also by the presence of large communities of resident microorganisms. In recent years, these microbial colonies were extensively researched and this revealed their ties with the host, the roles that these microbes play related with the immune system and the impact that dysbios has on the human body. This article presents data about the skin microbiota and recent discoveries of the interaction between skin microbial communities and host immunity.
