shabbat 107

above and below the skin
piercing the skin to let the pus out and wounds where the blood stays beneath, and never breaks through the skin

and is the skin a separate part of the animal?

(laws against trapping, inflicting a wound and killing on shabbat. can pierce the skin to drain an abscess  . also discussed on this page is the prohibition against making a a wound. defined as causing blood to bruise beneath the skin. also discussed is the prohibition to trap or wound any of the 8 named creeping animals, and whether or not their skin is considered part of their flesh or separate. for english translation of this talmud page, see here)
