I had a friend write with an idea for 72 hour kits or first aid kits. Her son fell about 9 feet out of a tree onto the cement edge of their pond and got a nasty gash by his eye and a concussion. After getting it all cleaned up and disinfected, a neighbor who also happens to be a nurse gave them some of this to close the cut up.
Krazy Glue? Seriously. If you've ever gotten this stuff on your fingers, you know how well it sticks skin together. And the individual use tubes are perfect--you probably also know how well a big tube of Krazy Glue glues itself shut after one use. The nurse friend told them super glue was invented for the purpose of closing skin. Their son did have to take a trip to the doctor to get the concussion checked out, he's doing much better and the cut is reportedly healing nicely.
I know when we had our daughter fall and cut her chin, the emergency room glued it together. They probably used one of these mini tubes of Krazy Glue and charged us a fortune for it. Definitely would have been cheaper to do that one ourselves! It would be worth picking a few of these up and having them handy in your first aid kits or emergency kits.
How about you? Ever used a form of super glue to glue a wound shut?
