noun - Macerated skin occurs when skin is in contact with moisture for too long. Macerated skin looks lighter in color and wrinkly. It may feel soft, wet, or soggy to the touch.
The wet-wrinkling response is the physiological change in human fingers and toes that wrinkle up due to prolonged time in the water. Researchers believe wrinkly fingers and toes is an autonomic nervous system reaction. Because it is easier to pick up wet objects with wrinkly fingers, finger wrinkles may give human an improved grip in the water.
