  • This method is less traumatic than stitches. The super glue in stores is similar in composition to the glue that physicians use in surgery. It will flake off in a few days. Your doc doesn’t want you to get it very wet because he doesn’t want it to come apart. Clean your wound the way he instructed you to. If you don’t remember the instructions, call his office nurse. They can instruct you and are less intimidating than the doctor. She/He can also answer your questions about the glue. Don’t worry, this procedure has been around a long time. If you want to research it on the internet, type in glue for wounds and lots of info will come up. good luck!
