Skin is constantly growing and replenishing itself. Like hair, old skin must fall off to reveal the new skin under it. Typically, we don't notice that skin flakes off because the friction of clothing does all the work.
Leprosy does not make skin parts to fall off but leads to loss of sensation in such areas.
Because it is constantly producing more skin cells
This doesn't make sense. Fall off? Fall down? Fall from grace? So I'll take a stab ... Yes the skin can fall. Probably. Regards Tony E
why do geckos tail fall off
The outer layer of skin does not grow with the snake and periodically the snake must shed its older skin so as to be able to grow. The skin does not simply fall off, it must be removed by the snake.
Yes. The outside layer is dead, but when they fall off, it's replaced by the skin underneath it.
Your skin changes over time. Skin cells die, and fall off. When this happens the marks come off with it! so it is permanent but that does it!
Skin cells are constantly replacing themselves. The ones that are dead fall off or are washed off the body.
If left alone - when the skin has healed underneath it.
Well than you stretch it and your skin may slowly fall off .
If the dry skin is on your heels, you can use a pumice stone. Otherwise, use a moisturizer, in order to allow soothing of the underlying skin, while the dry skin gradually works its way off.
