Yes I have. If you have ever bowled in a league they have something similar to crazy glue, it's called "new skin". It doesn't stick stuff together, but it forms a layer of "new" skin over the area you are protecting.

Keep a tube of it or EMT Gel (same thing) in my training bag and in the truck. Works on dogs for cut pads, lacerations etc. Humans too.

We use it to close lacerations in the medical field. We call it Dermabond, but It's basically the same. Works great. I keep some in the truck.

I trained with Dermabond in my medical training. Superglue WAS used for medical use, but has a higher rate of infection. Dermabond or any other trade name is better.

Also keep in mind. most open wounds DO NOT require stitches, and butterfly bandages can achieve the same thing.. it's simply done to reduce scarring.

Also, make sure you're somewhat competent before you go dermabonding wounds... like the importance of wound irrigation, cleaning and removing foreign contaminants from the wound before you go gluing yourself together.

Had to use New Skin recently. Stuff looks and works like superglue, except it doesn't last forever. I've gotten superglue on my skin before, stuff doesn't come off until the skin it's bonded to dies. Which can take awhile depending on how much you got on you.

In a pinch, superglue would work but if I was going to have a choice and stock something I would take what is intended for medical use. Thus, Dermabond or New Skin would be a better choice.

Agree. Good advice.

Heck...probably wal greens, rite aid, cvs or whatever pharmacy your region caters to...

Another thing...they're selling quik clot now at sporting goods stores... I know dicks carries it (and they suck, boycott them), so others might carry it too. I would rather have quik clot over dermabond.

Hell, skin is the only damn thing you can count on super glue holding tight for what seems like forever! We used it in the TV Shop when I was an Apprentice and I was forever sticking my fingers together, rip- there goes another layer! Heard once of a lady who got her cheater boyfriend all date rape drugged up and super-glued his bits to his legs, that hurts just thinking about it......
