Ok, got another of the dreaded "hangnail" things. Which is the better temporary fix...Krazy or Super (or neither LOL)? Thx in advance.

I just go the clear nail polish route when it happens to me ... well either clear of a subtile blush of pink. Anything more than that just looks tacky and gauche on someone my size!

One day while drying a very sharp chef's knife I gave my left ring finger a nasty slicing.The cut really should've gotten sutured up but where I'm squeamish I passed on that.Anyway after a few days with a Band-Aid it wasn't healing so I bought a bottle of brush-on Krazy Glue and painted on a few coats allowing for drying time between coats and the cut closed over completely in about 3 days.Today I can't even find the scar.That Krazy Glue is great stuff.

If industrial staples and a grinder don't work, go for the Krazy Glue. [biggrin]

I'd just cut off my finger to spite my hand.

I dont know...I'm more of a band-aid and play through it kind of person. Krazy Glue feels weird to me. Drives me crazy (Krazy?) when that stuff is on my skin.

Wait...you said Krazy OR Super glue? Arent they pretty much the same thing?

Krazy Glue is a brand name; Super Glue is a more generic term for cyanoacralate adhesive. The stuff was originally developed as a surgical adhesive before they started using it for everything else, so yeah, it WILL stick to human flesh (as anyone who's had a mishap while using it can attest). :blink:

I've never heard of putting crazy glue on a cut. Doesn't sound like something I'd want to try. For a hangnail I usually just wrap it in tape to prevent it from getting torn off.

It works and works well. I have managed to slice my fingers working, which would have been an absolute disaster without some superglue. Glue the cut back together and the evening jam session can go right on as planned. Word of warning. You can glue your fingers together and getting 'em back apart can be a challenge. Make sure the glue is set before you touch any other body part. [scared]
