Do not put super glue in the wound...my god, clean the wound with cool boiled salt water, cut some plasters into thin strips and pinch the skin together and place plasters so wound is tight then place a bandage over the wound to keep it clean and intact til you get to hospital they will glue or stitch if needed. The amount of chemicals in super glue will go in the blood

Depending on the size of the wound its more then likely some will seep into it, defiantly not something to recommend to a novice, you must be a pro so you can STICK with it Haha
