Old, thin, somewhat fragile skin cries out for this simple solution. Thanks Harry.

Had an emergency appendectomy last year and they closed me up with super glue. Neat as a pin.

Medical "Super Glue"
To overcome harmful issues of STD Super Glue, new CAs were developed with the express purpose of use in surgery. 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (Derma+flex® QS™, SurgiSeal, FloraSeal and Dermabond) causes less skin irritation and increased flexibility and strength compared to traditional 'Super Glue'. In 1998 the US FDA approved 2-octyl cyanoacrylate for the closure of wounds and surgical incision and in 2001 was approved as "barrier against common bacterial microbes including certain staphylococci, pseudomonads, and Escherichia coli".

n-butyl cyanoacrylate wound adhesives are available under the trade names: LiquiBand®, Histoacryl, Indermil, GluStitch, GluShield, and Periacryl (dental adhesive)

Octyl ester, while providing a weaker bond, are more flexible. Butyl esters provide stronger bond, but are rigid.

I can't afford those fancy band-aids, its electrical tape and paper towel bandages around here when needed.

The principle has been around since the 70's - commercially sold as anchor plasters or butterfly plasters. But in practice, most small cuts and scrapes just need to protected from abrasion, while natural healing takes place. I have also used whatever tape is handy. The advantage of the anchor plaster design is indeed in the "anchoring", and also the flexibility around a joint . As Harry's post shows, it is simple enough to make one's own. The only time it is nice to have them ready made, is when one is pouring blood, and there are not enough hands to staunch the flow and also cut the plaster.

Another great idea, recently resurrected, is the wound closure strip, used for longer linear wounds. The tape brings the two sides of the wound together, and holds them in position, while healing takes place. No stitches or staples to remove, no further skin puncturing. The type I liked best, when I was doing that kind of fixing, was a type that looks a bit like a box joint - interleaved strips of tape that pull in opposite directions without distorting.
