Q. Like some of your readers, I get cracked fingers when it's cold. This year I decided to try something different. I had a place split open at the end of my thumb. I put Super Glue on it, held it together and let it dry. It worked beautifully.
Instant glue seals up the crack so there's no pain. When it starts washing off, I just put more on it until it's well. Works great!
A. Physicians have been using a product similar to instant glue to close cuts. The cyanoacrylate glue they use is called Dermabond. This is now also available to consumers in Band-Aid brand Liquid Bandage. It may be less irritating to the skin than household instant adhesives like Super Glue or Krazy Glue.
