Before I start using first aid on some hapless Cub Scout - or more likely a
Cub Scout LEADER!!! - I know I will get two questions and I would like to have
1. How do we know it's safe? I know we've seen and heard it recommended by
professionals, but what's the stuff made of and how toxic is it? (Or isn't
2. As the cut heals, how do we get the super glue off?
And two more questions to satisfy my own curiosity:
1. Someone mentioned that it stopped the pain of a small cut as well. Anyone
know why this side-effect occurs?
2. ANY super glue? Or is there a specific brand or type to look for?
