Works great on smaller cuts. Had it happen to OSO bartender Jersey on ASG's boat a couple years ago. Worked great.

As for liability, carcinogens, infections, etc.......... FYI... none of you are getting out of this life alive

Found this but it says dont use it on deep cuts were ya see fatty tissue to see a doctor, what if you cant see a Doc and have to close it your self?I stayed in a Holiday Inn last night I can do it

It looks like I need stuff called DERMABOND But the superglue or a neddle and thread is going to be cheaper $300.00+ for a tube

Found this video on how to do it [Histoacryl]

Too late to close this. The cut must be stitched within 6 hours of the initial injury. The wound must be properly cleaned. Cyanoacrylate(super glue) is a medical tool but not for a deep injury such as this. Don't take a chance as this can be a serious risk for infection!

i used to use it when barefooting. We'd always catch little stuff and nick the hell or something open.. it worked fantastic on the calloused surface of a foot, never really used it on softer skin..

I used to use it when I was a UPS driver, the cracks on my hands from the steering wheel in the winter, eventually the new skin would push it out and you could just pull it off like a scab.

A guy did the same thing on the Miami Boat Show Poker Run. Except he didn't cut himself on the prop, but he used super glue as a band-aid. That was the first time I've heard of using superglue until now.

Little known fact, Super glue was invented in WW1 (or WW2 I forget) for soliders to close cuts and wounds ! Only after did they relize a comercial benifit for the glue.

Ever wonder why it bonds skin so fast? ecause it was originaly designed for doing just that!
