The skin is a complex barrier organ made of a symbiotic relationship between microbial communities and host tissue via complex signals provided by the innate and the adaptive immune systems. It is constantly exposed to various endogenous and exogenous factors which impact this balanced system potentially leading to inflammatory skin conditions comprising infections, allergies or autoimmune diseases. Recently, interest has extended beyond the gastrointestinal microbiome to include the skin microbiome and its impact on various skin diseases. This article aims to provide an overview on the knowledge about the skin microbiota, the microbiome and their importance in dermatology.
