The skin, it is well know, is an organ of frontier and it is natural seat to natch, or collition, between exogenous stimoli and endogenous responses. Termal water and spud mud revelead their better potency on the skin and for that their tird close attention in dermatology. Our primary pourpose was to evalue eventuals modifications induced by thermal water(More)
