STOP Using Super Glue on Your Cuts and Cracked Skin!

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.

Super Glue vs. Dermabond


Dermabond is produced under strict guidelines for use as a bandage or sutures/stitches. Super glue is NOT - it is made in industrial plants with additives and contamination. Any contaminant can quickly enter the blood stream when applied to cuts and cracked skin.

Cases of parents using Krazy glue on their children's cuts  (instead of stitches) have left permanent damage. I have also seen permanent damage done to the nail surface due to the use of Krazy glue and false nails. It can irritate skin, kill cells and aggravate infections.

So, STOP using Krazy/Super glue! There are so many safer products to use. You may have gotten away with it in the past, but why take a chance? For cuts, use Dermabond. For cracked feet, heels, fingers and cuticles, address the problem! Super glue may close the wound, but will actually contribute to further dryness and cracking. There are some great products out there that are natural and healthy for your skin and body, help with healing AND restoring moisture.

A whole lot of dermatologists say you’re full of shit.

Ordinary household super glues have been used for decades to seal small cuts. The naysayers warn about the fumes but neglect to acknowledge that the very same fumes are emitted every time one glues nails or repairs a broken bit of pottery.

Damage to tissue? As a first aid guy I’ve never ever seen it. I’ve used super glues to fasten some fairly significant cuts with great success; a veterinarian friend has used both medical grade and household super glues with similar success on a wide range of animals.

Most of us live in homes contaminated with lead paint and mercury-based antifungal agents, with radon gas seeping up from the foundations. Our municipal water is often contaminated with alarming levels of lead, arsenic and pesticides, yet we should fear a few micrograms of isocyanurate?
