Sebaceous


  • Oil producing glands in the skin of mammals
  • Located beneath the surface of the skin
  • Attached to hair follicles and release a fatty substance called sebum, into the follicular duct

Sudoriferous

  • Located over the entire body surface
  • Particularly abundant in the palms of hands, soles of feet, and forehead
  • Primary Function: Temperature regulation through sweating
  • Sweat is composed of 99% water, various salts, and organic compound
  • The two main types are apocrine and eccrine

Apocrine

  • Found on the breast, eyelid, and ear
  • Those in the breast secrete fat droplets into breast milk and those in the ear help form earwax
  • In the skin and eyelids, the apocrine glands are sweat glands
  • Most apocrine glands in the skin are in the armpits, the groin, and the area around the nipples of the breast
  • Apocrine glands in the skin are scent glands, and their secretions usually have an odor

Eccrine Sweat Gland

  • The most numerous of the sweat glands
  • Simple sweat glands
  • Sweat glands that aren't attached to follicles of hair.
  • Function: to respond to high body temperature due to exercise or outside heat by creating sweat.
  • Found on forehead, neck and back, may also be found on palms of hands and soles of feet.
