In very remote areas without available medical attention, it might be necessary to close a wound. Doing so with steri-strips is the easiest method, but steri-strips don’t always work in extremely wet conditions.
The next best option is to use a tissue glue. Super Glue or Crazy Glue is of a very similar chemical composition and may be easier to find. I always carry a tube of the gel superglue in my third world first aid kit.
The article below goes into great detail about how to effectively use the glue to close a laceration. Highly recommended.
