Superglue is good for holding a cut shut, if you can get it "down inside" and squeeze things together. For just stopping the bleeding, the old fashioned Duco glue works about as well to make a "cover" over the cut, although the "glue sniffers" made it hard to find in my area.

The really annoying cut is the one that leaves a "hanger" sticking up at the side that keeps getting hooked on things and keeps reopening the cut. Almost any "house paint" will work in a pinch, for coating it over to protect it, although I usually go for the artsy latex paint-in-a-tube because it tends not to dry out between uses (if you keep the cap on the tube).

Mineral oils, like vaseline, are considered "bacteriostatic" as most kinds of bacteria don't grow in them. This was an unknown but fortuitous benefit for those who worked in metal crafts, and who frequently ran around with bits of loose skin hanging out all over. Since everything was covered with oil, very few infections occured. But of course that problem went away when OSHA provided safe workplaces for everyone (?).

A peculiar, and apparently little known factoid about small cuts is that a cut on a galvanized edge often causes nausea disproportionate to the severity of the cut in a very high percentage of people, due to a slight "reaction" to the zinc. The only reliable cure for that "ill feeling" is an ice cream cone, which invariably settles the tummy almost instantly. (Cold enough milk also works, but ice cream is more fun.)

A news item from long ago was that in China they were using superglue for surgery-free vasectomies. An injection in each cord, squeeze the cord flat for 20 seconds, Bob's your uncle!

Lately I've been to the dermatologist and had to have pre-cancerous lesions frozen. This leads to a small, red patch of skin. I also had to have a small cancerous node cut out. This left an inch-long cut with stitches.

The news is that for both kinds of treatment, the dermies advised that I keep the injuries coated with Vaseline. Doing that promotes healing, apparently by keeping it moist.

A useful thing to know.

Super glue was invented when some mad scientist was mixing things together and suddently found that he had some of it. After that, they had to go looking for things to use it for.

It was pretty much a "laboratory product" for about ten years before the first "medical uses" began to appear, largely because people were used to buying goop by the quart, and the early cyanoacrylate was $300 per ounce. Most people thought it was too expensive to use for much of anything until they found out that only tiny amounts were needed, and once enough people found things to use it for the price came down (a little).

A lab where I worked while in college had been using it for about 5 years before the first person thought about "maybe sticking skin and bones together is a good thing," but at that lab a pair of "roller skate bearings" - after the testing to pick the ones that were good enough - was costing them about $250,000 per set. They were used to high-dollar stuff.

I don't think New Skin is superglue. It is air-drying, whereas superglue dries only when you exclude air, which is why the bottle is never full.
New Skin certainly makes you hop about when you apply it. I once (only once!) used it on a large graze when I came off my motorbike.

I drink a lot of tea, but I never thought of taking it intravenously.

What kinda electric shaver ya got? I have a Philips with three rotary heads. I ain't goin (can't go) back to a razor even tho I prefer it it but that's for "other reasons". The Philips does a great job, twice a day.

BUT, I don't use the trimmer attachment very often. I did again today for a slight touch up on the neck and hit a slice and dice scar (the other reasons) and bled. I learned my lesson for the last time and taped that weapon shut to remind me.

Yes, JiK. The first time this started I had been taking a drug that "may cause slow wound healing" but when I questioned my doc on it... no, there is not enough of it in the dosage to cause any problems.

Bottom line... eat right and get lots of exercise and don't smoke or drink or take drugs or fuck around. Just sing and dance. Simple enough to understand... when you get sick.

Especially if you're taking medications that might cause bleeding, any unusual bleeding should be reason enough for consulting your medical advisor. While things like coumadin are pretty well known, there are many other medications commonly used today that can cause unexpected bleeding, and sometimes a combination of things with low individual likelihood of excessive effect can, together, have a very strong and "nearly invisible" effect.

The real hazard is that excessive bleeding from minor cuts may indicate that you've been "dosed" to the point that internal bleeding becomes common, and you're not likely to notice it until you've lost enough to be serious.

Once you've established what's "normal" for you, with the medications you're taking, and that your "normal" is safe, there's less reason for concern; but if this is "something new" a check for less visible effects might be advisable.

Your advisor may be satisfied with a hemoglobin count, or may want the "turd smear" to rule out anything internal, but neither of those are invasive or difficult - or require real interruptions in normal activities.

If used for piles, try gauze tea bags. If ones nose is bleeding, you do have an option to stick it up your nose to stop the bleeding....not sure if it will work?   But, pressing the cut finger into a moist teabag may be more socially acceptable and visually appealing to your spouse.

A tea bag , immersed in cold water untill it is saturated. Ring out half the water out and apply mild pressure for about 10 minutes. People used to use 'em to stop bleeding when a tooth was pulled.

Never tried them, but these are supposed to work: Visine eye Drops,

There are clinical grades of super glue. There are even super glues to be used internally during surgury.
I used to get small cuts in the hands and fingers that started with tingling sensations and developed within 5 minutes into a cleavage in the skin that could bleed. If band-aids weren't handy I would just nail them shut.

Like Katlaughing and Open Mike, I'm on warfarin (Coumadin). When I first went in for my periodic clotting-time "stick", the nurse told me that if I got a cut I should put a fresh teabag on it. Seems the tannin in the tea promotes clotting. I haven't had occasion to test the advice.

If the cut is on the right, for example, you can get the bleeding to stop by making a bigger cut on the left. This will help restore the Bodily Humours (blood, bile, and so on) to their natural balance.
