How many chromosomes are there in a skin cell?

A

Depending on the location or type, each human cell has a specific number of chromosomes. Generally, humans are known to have a diploid number of chromosomes (46), except the gametes (23 chromosomes). All somatic cells are strictly diploid, and so skin cells, as somatic cells, have 46 chromosomes in total.
