The restorative powers of the human body are quite amazing. Without stitches, I can sucessfully go about my business with a simple cross over tourniquet of band-aids to keep the slashed wound on my finger from opening up again. If you've never had the opportunity to use Skin Shield ( a liquid multipurpose bandaid liquid type thing) I suggest that you get some. Other than the initial stinging pain that will bring tears to your eyes it's quite the handy stuff to have. And it's water proof. It's not as effective as superglue, and it clearly states on the bottle that it shouldn't be used for gaping wounds and more for nicks scrapes and minor cuts. It'll retard the initial scarring process and won't allow air to get to the boo-boo, but it keeps you from having to soak clothing in cold water to get the blood out. A bonus for any stupid clutz to have in the medicine cabinet, road side kit, camping first aid kit, party in a vest, and anyother place that one might feel compelled to put it to good use. Like, Say a glove box in your Jeep.
