Solution

The correct option is D All of the above
  • The dermis is a layer of skin between the epidermis and hypodermis.
  • It is divided into two layers, the superficial area adjacent to the epidermis called the papillary region and a deep thicker area known as the reticular dermis.
  • It also contains mechanoreceptors that provide the sense of touch and thermoreceptors that provide a sense of heat. In addition, hair follicles, sweat glands, sebaceous glands (oil glands), apocrine glands, lymphatic vessels, nerves and blood vessels are present in the dermis.
  • Those blood vessels provide nourishment and waste removal for both dermal and epidermal cells. Hence, dermis consists of Sebaceous gland and sweat gland, Hair follicle and Blood vessel.
So, the correct answer is 'All of the above'.
