For relatively small, normal cuts, thoroughly clean the area with anti-bacterial soap like Safeguard or Dial. After a good soaping, rinse (I know, this part is a bit painful), then pour a bit of hydrogen peroxide (should be in everyone's medicine cabinet) over the cut and let the solution bubble then carefully dry with a cotton swab and place a small amount of household glue (think Elmer's school glue) directly to the site with a clean swab and GENTLY push the split skin together until the glue has successfully dried (may use a hairdryer on a low setting)and then place a clean band-aid over the wound. Change the dressing as needed. Ironically, this method is used in medical clinics, however, with a different type of glue but I promise this works.

P.S. - also use this remedy for painful, deep skin cracks!

Use super glue. Much better and faster adhesive then elmers. Hydrogen peroxide, bactracin, super glue then once set clean sterile compression gauze!
