Can i put superglue on a cut on my finger?

Report as

Excellent answer from Kokinow. It definitely can be used, however, it is a chemical and (my opinion) only use on small cuts not requiring stitches. To clean the wound, rather than hydrogen peroxide, soak in as warm water as you can stand, with table salt added. Stir to semi-dissolve. It's still the best "old wives tale" (my opinion) to draw out infections and cleanse a wound before it gets an infection. Especially good for hangnails. Use enough salt to liberally cover the bottom of the container you're using.

Liquid bandages that are sold in stores in a form of superglue. Hospitals use it when cuts are too small for stitches. Theres lots of articles abt it. Google it.

Yes, in fact superglue was designed as an emergency adhesive to bond human tissue for use during the wartime. The danger is sealing in bacteria, so you must make sure it is absolutely clean first.

No don't! You're not susposed to get it on your skin at all, and in an open cut it could cause some complications with the healing, and also if it goes into your bloodstream.

NO! That is not wise because you never want to put anything that is not sterile on an open cut or wound because of bacterial contamination & the last I checked the tip of a superglue tube is NOT sterile. The liquid bandage drs or hospitals use is sterile. They do sell nice little bandaid called butterfly that will bring a cut together & help in healing.
