Krazy Glue or Super Glue is made from a chemicals called cyanoacrylate (such as ethyl-2 cyanoacrylate and methyl-2 cyanoacrylate). Used for a variety of household applications, it is also used in the cosmetic industry to glue false nails in place.
Cyanoacrylates have been used to close wounds in the past. However, due to its potential to irritate the skin, a safer version called 2-Octylcyanoacrylate was created (commonly known as Dermabond). This is not quite the same thing as Krazy glue, but people get mixed up and think that they can safely glue their wounds.
