We've all heard of people using super glue as a callus before, what about on skin that's really weak? I just tore the crap out of one of my fingers that I desperately need, would super glue be safe on it?

Wasn't super glue invented for that purpose or something?

^This. The original purpose for super glue was to close wounds.

Super glue was pretty much invented as a medical adhesive. However, you have to be careful: make sure you have good quality super glue, as the cheap stuff is more likely to be a mix of different chemicals, some of which may be toxic. Also, I'm fairly certain super glue reacts quite explosively to linen, cotton and silk, so be careful when applying it.

However, depending on the openness of the wound you might be better off not applying super glue. On small cuts that are likely to keep opening it's good, but on deep, open cuts you're better off seeking proper medical advice.

If you could describe the cut in more precise terms than "tore the crap out", we may be of more use.

Good sensible advice here TS

Super glue? That sounds kind of extreme, TS. Wouldn't you just rather cauterize the heck out of it?

Yea. I'd use an acetylene torch.

When I say "tore the crap out of" I don't mean that it's hardcore bleeding or anything. I mean I tore through a very solid callus I've been building for 3 years. Right now it's at like the weakest layer of skin (which is extremely red) and minor amounts of blood have come out.

I met a guy once who tried to cauterize a wound using a lighter, all it did was compound a cut with a burn.

Hmm, I'd be cautious about using super glue then (unless you have proper medical grade stuff). If you're at that layer of skin then infection is your main risk, and super glue can leave holes and bubbles in the layer than allow for infections to form. I'd apply to antiseptic cream and put a plaster/bandage on. Super glue will mean you can play again quicker, but it might be better to just speed up the healing, which super glue isn't likely to do with surface damage.

Quote by Wikipedia
Harry Coover said in 1966 that a CA spray was used in the Vietnam War to ****** bleeding in wounded soldiers until they could be brought to a hospital. Butyl cyanoacrylate has been used medically since the 1970s outside the US, but, due to its potential to irritate the skin, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration did not approve its use as a medical adhesive until 1998 with Dermabond. Research has demonstrated the use of cyanoacrylate in wound closure as being safer and more functional than traditional suturing (stitches). The adhesive has demonstrated superior performance in the time required to close a wound, incidence of infection (suture canals through the skin's epidermal, dermal, and subcutaneous fat layers introduce extra routes of contamination), and final cosmetic appearance.


In other words it works but the FDA doesn't recommend it.

Cyanoacrylate aka Krazy Glue was used with extreme success by doctors in the Vietnam war to seal mild cuts. It acts essentially as a second skin and is non-toxic and safe. As a long time first aid attendant it is something I keep in my first aid kit. Warm water can easily dissolve the glue so its not hard to get off. I have never had much luck with steri-strips (those stick on stitches) actually sticking and staying, a little bit of Krazy Glue does a much better job. They actually formulate specific versions of Cyanoacrylate especially for this use now.

Don't cauterize it, use the super glue and keep reapplying until the wound is healed up. If you apply the glue soon enough theres no way for infectious germs to get in, it will make a pretty good seal around the whole area. Highly recommended for cuts of all kinds. May sting a bit at first though.

Super glue is actually used in eye surgeries to hold the eye lids open while preforming some eye surgeries. if the stuff is ok to go onto your eyeball I'm plenty sure its fine for your finger.
Yes, I have done that, and it indeed, was incredible.

Put a bandaid or, if it's that big, gauze and medical tape on it like a sane person.

Well it's been used in battle and was popular in Vietnam I believe. Only problem is that it's only a temporary fix, especially for deep and more serious wounds like nasty gashes and gunshots due to internal bleeding. And also the fact that it doesn't actually fix what's going on in there.

But in your case it's just a normal cut. I guess it'll probably work great. Can't say it's a completely healthy thing to do though. Seems kind of like overkill if you ask me. You know they actually make like medical-grade superglue for things like that eh. Also, I'm sure a simple bandage could suffice.
