In skype, 
click on TOOLS,  then click on OPTIONS...
then on the left panel, click on AUDIO SETTINGS... then un-tick the box that says: "Let skype adjust my audio settings"

    Thanks, but that didn't solve my problem. Mic will not unmute ever since I downloaded the latest Skype version 5.1.112

If before you coud mute you mic it mean tha something had happen with a new version of skype, uninstall skype and install an earlier version.
If its ok now , just wait for a new version of skype, probably it will be fixed.
