"Super glue" can be used to mend skin wounds.

  Using superglues (Krazy Glue, Flash Glue, etc) will work in a pinch to seal small wounds such as cracks or paper cuts. But it's not a good idea to use them on deep or large wounds. They can be toxic to tissues and delay healing.

  Contrary to popular belief, superglues were NOT originally developed to heal wounds and are NOT the same as medical glues.

  But it's easy to see how these misconceptions came about.
