How does the sense of touch protect the body from injury?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How does the sense of touch protect the body from injury?       
How does the sense of touch protect the body from injury? Your skin continuously passes huge amounts of information to the brain. It monitors touch, pain, temperature and other factors that tell the brain exactly how the body is being affected by its environment.

Without this constant flow of information, you would keep injuring yourself accidentally, which is what happens in some rare diseases where the skin senses are lost.

Sensations in the skin are measured by tiny receptors at the ends of nerve fibres. There are several different types of receptor.
Each type can detect only one kind of sensation, such as pain, temperature, pressure, touch and so on.
