What are the conditions necessary to form a hydrogen bond? How strong are hydrogen bonds?

hydrogen bonds require an electronegative atom such as oxygen, but it also makes up our skin, why does a hydrogen bond not occur?

Why do you think it doesn't?

I do not find any experiment where this process is confirmed.

Can you think how such experiment would be done? Can you plan one?
