We consider a problem of skin tissue of the human head subjected to thermal diffusion with relaxation time. The bounding surface of the tissue of the human head is subjected to a thermal shock. The chemical potential is also assumed to be a known function of time on the bounding plane. Laplace transform techniques are used and the results are obtained numerically using a numerical method for the inversion of the Laplace transform based on Tzou method. The temperature distribution and the concentration distribution are obtained and represented in figures. According to the results, the values of the time and the distance have significant effects on the temperature increment and the concentration. The values of the temperature increment and the concentration increase when the time increases and decrease when the distance increases.
