    Respected sir,

    Due to the changing weather conditions I am having some issues with my skin. I visited a dermatologist two days back and she suggested that I undergo a skin treatment to alleviate my condition. The treatment will take six days and I am not allowed to expose my skin to sun light during this time, which will make it impossible for me to attend work.

    Given my situation, I would like to request a week-long leave, from the 4th of May to the 10th, and will report back to work on the 11th of May.

    During my absence you can coordinate with Elizabeth Twain, who also has my personal contact details.

    I would appreciate it if you approved my leave request.
