I have a spot on my face that I dug at for a constant three hour binge about five days ago. My other scars are very bad as a result of similar digging episodes, however, they don't always get this deep. There was one other occation four years ago that landed me into the ER with 6 stitches on my chin. I'm afraid to say this one is even a bit worse. Yes, I know I should probably return to the ER, but I'm afraid they will want to have mental health question me. I'm not crazy, and I know you, who are reading this, probably aren't crazy either. We just do what we do, and would most likely stop if we could. My question is this, has anyone used super glue on an open wound to seal it up? Does it even work? I have used liquid band aid in the past but it isnt strong enough to hold the big gaps shut. I of course would clean it out properly and no infection seems evidant. The damn thing just won't close, most likely because it's near my mouth and well, I have to actually talk (on good days may even laugh!) and in doing so, my wound moves, stretches and stays open. It also will not stop weeping. It's a small amount, but annoying non the less. I cover it with a band aid during the day at work and let it air out at night. I freakin hate this. I'm ashamed, feel disgusting, and hate that my thirteen year old sees this. I hide behind band aids so she can't see the actual holes I put on my face and body, but she clearly knows what I do. I'm sure she's embarresed of me, and I can't blame her. Please let me know if you've used super glue and if it works.
